What a year it’s been!  We have thrived, flexed, and grown, and continued to build on our amazing work! Of course, none of this would have been possible without you and our clients, who remain at the heart of our work.

This year, we boldly launched a freephone service and have taken 31,223 calls since 23 March. We continue to be trusted by those we serve and in high demand.

We hope you will join us for a very special AGM being brought live via Zoom.
