We also continue to work with a significant number of key partners whose ambitions we share, such as DWP, DCMS, MHCLG, Department for Education, NCS, Sport England and the NHS. We are confident about the pivotal role we can play in helping them to meet our shared objectives.  In the past year we have invested over £18 million in our network, more than ever before.
