News from The Great Collaboration

HGN are delighted to announce that we’re passing on the Great Collaboration website to the Place Based Initiative, who will take forward the running and development of the Great Collaboration online resources.

They have some excellent plans to develop and extend what we’ve done so far. Hosting (and data protection) will still be with Hereford’s DM Lab, and we’ll be working closely with PBI to ensure a smooth handover.
