Team goal

We ask our teams to set possible but improbable goals so they think big!

Team ALFFI will work with families in Ardwick and Longsight with children under 16, to increase uptake of income maximisation services by 100%.

What’s the plan?

What have we done so far?

Day 1 and 2

We had an intense 2-day session to launch our 100 day challenge. It was great to bring together Team ALFFI for the first time and to develop our ideas, goal and tests as a team.

Day 27

On 12 February, a few of us were able to meet to develop our plans.

What are the key upcoming dates and activities?

Day 50

On 6 March, the team will get together at the Irish World Heritage Centre, Cheetham Hill, to assess how their tests and ideas have been working and to plan for the next 25 and 50 days.

Day 75

On 1 April, the team will meet at The Hough End Centre to agree how to overcome the last hurdles and to find a spurt of energy to carry them through the last 25 days.

Day 100

On 29 April at The Hough End Centre, the team will be able to celebrate everything that they have learned and achieved during their 100 Day Challenge.

Teams will present to partners from the wider system to share their story, their learning and their recommendations for how this work can be sustained and/or scaled up.
