Client Champion

As part of our ongoing process of service evaluation, and with the aim of ensuring we are fully representative of the communities we serve, HARC appointed a Client Champion to our Board of Trustees in 2021.

Our Client Champion is unbiased when providing a voice for our service users. She acts as liaison between clients and the Board and treats any information shared with empathy and discretion.

To contact our Client Champion email enquiries@harcuk.com or call 01424 428375.

See the results of our 2023 Independent Client Survey here.
