HGO Portfolio

HGO has over the years focused on some specific issues in relation to the delivery of care and support services by voluntary organisations and we share here some of the products of that work. This is both to act as a showcase as to what HGO is capable of delivering but also to provide you with extra resources that you can use for yourself as you see fit. If any of this makes you think that HGO can meet your needs for assistance then contact us.
