Our success is not just down to us. We know we can’t work alone and there are fantastic like-minded organisations out there that can help us to maximise people’s potential. The public, private and voluntary sectors all have a part to play.

We were one of the first providers to be accredited with the Merlin Standard, which sets out a standard of behaviour in supply chain management and have been awarded an accreditation rating of ‘Good’.

Providing exceptional local knowledge and tailored experiences, our partners share our values, ethos and best practice and in turn, helps us drive service excellence and innovation. We have a rigorous selection process to determine the most appropriate organisations to help us support people to further their journey.

And with a healthy supplier base that drives competition and mutually beneficial commercial arrangements, we have the flexibility to deal with risk.
