Chairperson's Introduction to The Annual Report
- Category: Narrative and Financial Report 2005
I am pleased to introduce our annual report for the year 2004-2005. Following my appointment as chairperson for Care Link in November 2004, this charity quickly became a recognised and a registered charity later in May 2005. The Charity has seen a year of considerable development, and it seems clear that there is more to come. The establishment of new governance tools and arrangements to separate the roles of the trustees in the management committee has added a new dynamism to the Board. This paved the way for a wide ranging strategic review, looking to the future and to meeting the vision of the charity in more customer-facing and innovative ways.
This year the charity faced the challenge of a complete turnaround of fundraising. Nevertheless, I am pleased to report that the service provided to service users did not diminish. In great measure, this was due to the efforts of every trustee and our volunteers. I thank everyone and all of the team, past and present, for their enthusiasm and commitment.
I hope that you find our report interesting and informative. Gaspard Nzamurambaho, Chairperson
