Activity areas

We link our Mission Statement to a series of ‘Activity Areas’ to provide a framework for our operation. These ‘Activity Areas’ are the most fluid part of our operation, as whilst the strategy and mission give the general direction of our activities and must stand the test of time, it is clear that activities on the ground will change more rapidly as projects come and go. It is also clear that we need to maintain a high degree of flexibility if we are to take advantage of opportunities that will from time to time present themselves.
