ISO 9001 Quality Assurance Accreditation

We consider this Quality Assurance standard a big deal! Without boring you with the in depth details, in a nut shell, this accreditation means our organisation, after great measure of dedication, has been externally audited and approved as having effective policies and processes. This means that we are a responsible provider and do everything by the book!



Event: Hope’s Open Day 2016!

We were so lucky with the weather once again this year. The date of the event was the only day that week that did not suffer torrential rain! Besides the weather, the day was a huge success and we thank everyone for coming.

We had lots going on. There was a live band performing throughout thanks to Vita Nova who put on a terrific show. Many of our guests from the various agencies we liaise with had the opportunity to put up a stand and hand out lots of leaflets and information to other guests which provided a great hub for networking. The BBQ proved to be very popular too. All foods were donated by Waitrose (both the Winton and Wimbourne branches). Also, within our log cabins there was tea/coffee and a selection of cakes and pastries. Inside the log cabin we were also flaunting our new interactive whiteboard which was donated by JP Morgan.

Our main event for the day was the Award Ceremony. This is our opportunity to celebrate the significant developments client’s have achieved over the course of the year. Many high achievement awards were granted to various clients. We thank Abbey Life Assurance for donating these awards.

We want to also thank the many organisations (see list below) that helped us with our summer appeal – providing many items to help our clients enjoy the summer i.e. soaps & toiletries, sun cream, sunglasses and items of clothing.

And lastly, we would be remiss not to mention our annual raffle draw! Lots of local businesses were so kind to donate various prizes for the many winners (please see list below).
