"We work hard at the Centre. We have high expectations, and an ambitious plan about what we want to achieve. New strands of work come in regularly, and we have to flex and adapt to embed them into our existing portfolio. We’re a small charity, seeking to raise funding from trusts and foundations rather than pursuing a new business model that ‘sells products’ to ‘clients’. Everyone needs to play a part in nurturing our relationships, and refining our offer to practitioners, commissioners and the funding community. Every choice we make, matters. Every word we use, counts. Everybody counts or nobody counts" - Bethia McNeil, CEO
