Roger Chapman, Head of the matrix Service for The Growth Company said:
“This is a fantastic achievement for Sheffield United Community Foundation and I would like to congratulate the team on their success. We believe that at the heart of high-quality advice and support services are strong leadership, excellent service and a focus on continuous improvement, all underpinned by effective use of the resources available. The matrix Standard is designed to benchmark organisations against best practice in these areas. With their accreditation success, Sheffield United Community Foundation is working to provide the best possible support to their clients.”
