PCP's Chair Review 2019 - 20

Latest news at the Pioneering Care Partnership

I feel privileged and proud to speak to you in my capacity as Chair of the Pioneering Care Partnership (PCP) and on behalf of my fellow Trustees, hope that you find the Annual Report informative, positive and reassuring, particularly as we entered unprecedented times during the last week of the financial year.

Financially 2019-20 was another successful year for PCP, income had increased through the development of new initiatives and, as custodians of charitable funds, we continue to be prudent and efficient in our approach, which led to a decrease in expenditure when compared with the previous year. As we move into uncharted territory we know 2020-21 will be more challenging and as a Board we’re working closely with the Chief Executive to continue to plan for a positive future.   

This is good news, however I am more delighted to draw your attention to Carol’s welcome message, outlining some of PCP’s work and achievements, as this is what really matters; making a difference within our communities. Obviously this doesn’t occur without commitment to extend the delivery of projects and relentlessly seeking more efficient and effective ways of working; this along with excellent delivery of projects and services from our teams across the whole organisation makes PCP a success. 

On a more sombre note, I would like to pay tribute to Paul Davidson. Paul was previously a trustee, who sadly passed away in December 2019; our thoughts are with his wife Linda and family. In conclusion I would like to thank my fellow trustees, and all of the staff and volunteers for everything they have done, enabling the PCP deliver services to make a difference and enhancing its reputation locally, nationally and now globally, well done Becky!  

Hopefully this drive and determination will help PCP sustain our service delivery, during the current challenges posed by COVID-19. 

Thank you. 
Barry Knevitt (Chair)
