“I am passionate about the services delivered by Brandon Centre; the professionalism of the staff and Board of Trustees is exemplary. The unsolicited positive feedback received by young people who use the services and the impact this has had on their lives fills me with a sense of pride. I am honoured to be involved in such a worthwhile charity where what we do, the contribution by all staff across the organisation really matters and makes a difference to a young person’s life and the community itself. The ability of a young person to self-refer and take direct control of their lives sets Brandon Centre apart from other local community-based charities.”
