“Trusted Contacts has been a great source of support to me in many ways – they are a great bunch of professional and friendly people with a wealth of knowledge and contacts. YE is a long established organisation but still the best kept secret in education. Trusted Contacts members have helped to share that secret and have got involved with their time and financial support to us as a charity”
