It's that time of year where we look back at all we've achieved together - including the Summer School, the collaborative development of degree apprenticeships and the new estranged students solidarity campaign - and look to our hopes for 2019. We're working on some exciting bids, we expect NCOP to go from strength to strength, engaging young people in our region and continuing to raise aspirations through our diverse activities including our innovative foster family fun days.

We're always open to hear from you too, please do get in touch and let us know what keeps you awake at night - what ideas and hopes do you have for GHWY in 2019?

Are you suffering from Acronym Fatigue (AF)?


A general confusion and need to refer to the glossary every time you read a report due to the over-use of acronyms (noun. An abbreviation formed from the initial letters of other words and pronounced as a word e.g. HEP, LEP).

Who gets AF?

Most people are likely to have experienced AF at some time.

What causes AF?

People trying to save time and space by not writing words out in full, which inadvertently put up barriers to those not used to our jargon.

How is AF treated?
