We hope you are enjoying using our website. We welcome feedback on it, so we can keep improving it.
This version of our website was created in 2021 by two of our core team – Steph Ball, Communications Hub co-Lead and Jo Dodds co-Strategy Director. It was an international collaboration with Steph in Canada and Jo in the UK.
Jo Dodds refreshed and simplified the website design as an interim measure in 2019.
