Children at Contact Centre took part in a Christmas card competition.  The winning design, as judged by our Volunteers was by 9 year old Megan - well done! All entries were made into calendars for the children to take home.

Accreditation at last - This month ACCC was delighted to hear that NACCC has awarded us with Accreditation status (logo at bottom of page).  The work of ACCC is now recognised as meeting agreed and approved National Standards, and all the effort has paid off!
