Too often we forget to say thank you to people and organisations who are supporting us. So, on behalf of our members, CEN would like to say a massive thank you to all our regional funders for the support and trust you have given our members. In many cases this support has been over a long period of time. We understand that you have many worthy organisations coming to you for help and your recognition of the needs we are meeting and your trust in member organisations is highly valued. This loyalty is earned through hard work and an open relationship where trust and transparency are critical. Because the people working for CEN organisations are also part of the community, there is a high degree of trust and engagement from the people living in the homes. This often results in other conversations about what else can be done to further improve the performance of the home (sometimes the best ideas are free!).See here for examples of how the work our members do impacts people in their community.
