Happy New Year!

As 2019 comes to an end and we welcome in a new decade I want to take the opportunity to pay tribute to everyone at Certitude for the important role you play in people’s lives, throughout the year. 

Standing alongside people and sharing some of life’s most difficult and uplifting moments, happiest and darkest times and everyday experiences. Loving what we do, the people and families we support, the jobs we have, the difference we make. Being brave enough to challenge and do what is right – for the person not the system. We accompany people in all sorts of adventures, trying new things, learning skills, harnessing hope and strength to take advantage of the possibilities ahead. We share the joy when things turn out better than hoped, sadness when life throws what can feel like unbearable challenges and laughter as we enjoy simple pleasures together. What a wonderful privilege this is.

I want to thank all our wonderful staff, volunteers, board members, supporters, donors and partners for the thoughtful, kind and often inspiring support you provide throughout the year. So many of you have worked over the festive period sharing wonderful moments of hope, joy and happiness – Thank You.

I hope the coming year brings everything you wish for yourself and your loved ones. At Certitude, we will continue to work together to do what is right so more people can live the lives they choose and bring their own unique brilliance to our world.

Happy 2020!
