AFG announce New Years Honours List 2013

On Friday 24th January 2014, AFG closed their 21st birthday celebrations with a conference which brought together a stellar line up to celebrate the achievements and innovations in Our Third Sector.

As part of our reflection on a year that celebrated 21 years of providing person-centred life-enriching support to adults with learning disabilities and mental health needs across the North West, we’d like to recognise the individuals and organisations that have helped make 2013 an outstanding year for AFG.

Thank you

CEO Neil Campbell with Shadow Secretary of State for Health Rt Hon Andy Burnham MP
