It is Trustees’ Week 2021 which provides us with an excellent opportunity to showcase and recognise the work of our amazing Trustees. A big “thank you” to you all this week, and in fact EVERY week, for supporting our charity through your innovation and governance and for helping to make a big difference to young people’s mental health & wellbeing.
