Record Breaking Year

​By 2019 we had grown in all areas of our business, won numerous awards and accolades, gone from strength to strength and broken a number of our own records. Our strategic focus, operational framework, impressive NPS customer satisfaction scores, commitment to staff learning and development and financial success enabled us to secure outside investment for the first time. When Alcuin Capital partners took a minority shareholding in the business which would contribute to the realisation of our ambitious 5 year growth plans.
