“As a Brummie lad ending my housing career here has made me incredibly proud and happy. I am really proud of Trident Group and that it is still continuing to present itself as a “Beacon of Hope” to the very many people who need help.

The new chair, Brian and the rest of the team will continue to ensure Trident is a high performing organisation helping the most vulnerable. He – and they – will do a great job.”
