Welcome to the Board's final update of 2016. As I look back on the last 12 months, it is astounding just how much progress Futures has made, how many changes the organisation has embarked upon and how everyone has faced and tackled challenges in an incredibly positive and proactive way.
The Board is acutely aware of just how challenging the last few months, in particular, have been for teams and I would personally like to thank each and every staff member for your ongoing commitment and professionalism which continues to make Futures a top class organisation.
For those who are leaving Futures, my colleagues and I would like to say thank you for everything you have done and for the impact you have made. You have all played a role in making Futures the organisation it is today.
What is very apparent from the latest statistics is that despite the changes we're going through, Futures' exceptional performance has not faltered. That is a glowing tribute to the work you do.
On behalf of the Board, we wish you a very happy Christmas and new year and look forward to celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Group in 2017.
