This week has been one of those weeks where really important stuff has to be done at breakneck speed. Where is feels stressful because the stakes are quite high but you’re really happy it’s getting done. So, this week has been a very productive and significant week – but I’m glad it’s over!
When you set out to rename and rebrand and organisation and develop a new website and social channels in just 3 months, “You’ve taken a really robust approach” isn’t what you expect to hear in feedback from presenting progress to your board.

It’s been a great start to 2022 for us as Carers Trust South East Wales. As we closed the doors on 2021, we knew that it would be a busy time when were returned in the new year but I’m not sure we quite anticipated it would be this busy – but in a good way.
