Welcome to our first virtual Annual General Meeting.
Whilst we were disappointed that we are unable to meet in person this year, we are really pleased so many of you joined us online so we could share with you the highlights of our first year as a newly merged Trust. We have included the recording of the event on this page and also questions raised prior to the meeting and their answers.
At our face to face events, we would usually invite partner organisations to have a stand to showcase their services. This year we included information about our partners in our virtual exhibition below.
