It's that time of year where we look to the future and reflect....

Seasonal message to our supporters, friends, stakeholders, customers & employees

Dear All

Despite all our hopes and prayers for the better this time last year, it has been another tough year, especially for those working within our sector. Just when maybe we thought we had COVID beaten it has revealed a nasty little sting in the tail, which once again is likely to place immeasurable challenges and pressures on all of us, just when we thought Christmas would bring some relief and joy.

The Board never fails to be impressed by your devotion to providing quality care, education, support for our communities, and comfort to Oaklea customers, whatever your role in the organisation. I was delighted that this was recognised recently by HRH The Duchess of Cambridge who invited Oaklea CEO Clive and Director Sue on your behalf to a Carol Service at Westminster Abbey as a very special “thank you and well done”.

It’s true what they say, any organisation is only as good as its people and on behalf of the Board, I would like to say a huge “thank you” for being the truly inspirational people that you are. Let’s hope that 2022 is brighter for us all and that whatever you are doing this Christmas, it may bring a little joy and happiness, even to those who are working. May I wish you, your family and friends all the very best for a happy Christmas and peaceful new year. Sincerely.

Chris Harris Chairman, Oaklea Group
