After meeting with a number of local accountants that specialise in Education, we have definitely appointed the right team for us, providing real expertise in both the education and corporate sectors. Misty and her team have delivered a quick response and solution focused approach, and what was very important for us was a family feel personal account service that was also good value for money. 

Life Chance has gone through a period of rapid staffing and financial growth, the team at Griffin have supported us throughout a major year of growth, and knowing we can rely on their help, advice and support to our finance officer and Executive Leadership team has been very reassuring. ”
