Good News!

Dear All

I write with some exciting news which I hope will come as a breath of fresh air during the current
challenges we all face.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I am delighted to announce that Pro-Action will now continue
operating, though as a smaller organisation, functioning in a different way moving forwards.

The bulk of our funding comes from Hertfordshire County Council’s YC Hertfordshire Services for
Young People in the form of a Service Level Agreement. Following some negotiations and evaluation with Peter Hosier, Head of Service, Hertfordshire County Council will provide Pro-Action with funding, at the same level as this financial year, for a reduced service. Thanks to Peter’s efforts and encouragement, Pro-Action will continue to support the Voluntary Youth Sector in Hertfordshire, retaining a membership base and delivering services in the key areas of:
• Safeguarding & DBS
• Quality & Compliance
• Training

With immediate effect Tracy, Abby and Sue will remain employed with the organisation and be
supported by a reduced Trustee Board, who together will continue to provide member support. We will in due course provide a new training offer, and membership/alliance package. However, this will be delayed due to the current Covid-19 crisis. In light of these circumstances, we are extending Members' current membership that is due to expire on 31st March 2020 to 31st August 2020. Membership renewal will commence from 1st September 2020 for a 12-month period.
Please bear with us as we now begin the task of reinstating some back-office systems that we need in place in order to function. Also, please be mindful that we are now operating with a significantly smaller team. We will use the same phone numbers as before and email addresses remain: – 07841 032139 – 07557 562605 – 07827 947670
