In September 2017 we were accredited by the Market Research Society (MRS) which validates the robustness of our research and in March 2018 became the first organisation in Northamptonshire to be awarded the Investing in Children accolade for our work with Young Healthwatch.
Over the course of the year we attended 30 events and talked to approximately 1,500 people.
