“Gillian goes above and beyond, she is very responsive to the whole team and delivers outstanding work. ”
“PSGS was chosen because of their knowledge of the subject and awareness of our particular schemes.”
“I learnt more than I expected to at the trustee training course. A good introduction to the trustee role.”

“Excellent and comprehensive training course. I will definitely refer to what I've learned and received. ”
“Wish I'd had the opportunity to do the Trustee training course sooner! ”
