The last Yes client group meeting of 2018 on December 14th welcomed two interesting guests pictured with some of the customers who attended.
Jordan Beaux (second from right back row) was on a 13 week placement with us and summarised his work with volunteer Sophie Anderton carrying out our annual customer survey. As with previous years satisfaction ratings were in excess of 9 out of 10. The client group were able to verify other facts and figures from their own experience as well as asking some questions, making some comments and congratulating the dream team of Sophie and Jordan on a job well done!
Jordan returned to his native France on December 21st whilst Sophie is currently in an administrative role with a local housing organisation – bon voyage and/or bon chance both!
