“My aim is to build on the good work al­ready be­ing done by this amaz­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion, poised to cel­e­brate its first 25 years – and to en­sure it is ready for the next 25! Peo­ple, their fam­i­lies and their loved ones will be at the heart of ev­ery­thing I do.”

CEO Dee Sis­sons is pic­tured in con­ver­sa­tion with Rain­bows young adult, De­clan Spencer (19) from Sys­ton.
