Sir Ron Carter supports BACS with the following statement.
“I have come to realise how much wisdom exists in communities that is never released so that it can benefit all. Societies, after all, are a just collective to which we can and should contribute our own abilities.
Partnerships offer a low key approach for each of us to be involved in the success of our community but do so where we feel our skills are “best fit” to success.
By becoming active in a partnership which relates well to your individual strength it is possible to make a difference without moving beyond your comfort zone.
Businesses too have particular areas of strength –they can give back to their community through a partnership approach –the Team that makes a difference gives satisfaction to all sides.”
