A group of Master’s students from the Business Schools of the Universities of Applied Sciences and Arts of Lucerne and Zurich in Switzerland visited Local Solutions today.

The students and their tutors were on a study tour in Liverpool focusing on the current challenges and trends in the field of management of the public sector and civil society organisations. Students visiting the Liverpool Watersports Centre

The wider tour included visits to Liverpool City Council and Liverpool Vision. During the visit the students learnt about the range of services Local Solutions delivers including the Work Programme, Homeground, domestic violence services and the Liverpool Watersports Centre and engaged in conversations about the nature of service delivery and social concerns in the UK and Switzerland.

Below are some quotes from the group about their trip to Local Solutions:

"I was very impressed by the wide variety of problems you deal with and especially how you deal with it: Outcome-driven, respectful and with plenty of engagement!"

“The daily commitment of the local solution staff to their mission is impressive. They live for their work.”
Thomas Weber & Andrea Maffeis, Zurich University of Applied Sciences

“I think Local Solutions is a place where young people feel safe and secure. It is very important that there are organizations helping young people who really are in the need of it. You can feel the warmth of all employees and get the impression that they really understand young peoples’ needs from the moment you enter the organization.”
