Demand for Services
The graph shows the demand up to the end of June 2022.
As the graph clearly indicates, we are experiencing a strong increase in demand for services. There is an organic increase in the number of new client referrals with 2022 running close to the rate of 2019 (160 new clients so far) following the lull during the pandemic. The reasons for increased demand are predominately the reasons which are “typical” to us, rather than anything specifically related to the cost of living issues in the news and I would anticipate we will see more as a result of this in future months. Client Support referrals are running higher than ever and links with those third party agencies are excellent and effective.
