        Acumen Financial Planning (AFP) have supported Grampian Hospitals Arts Trust for seven years. On top of a generous donation each year Acumen help us with marketing our work to show you how we deliver the difference for patients, staff and visitors to NHS Grampian.

        In 2016 APF sponsored our abseil from Ashgrove House and in 2019, just before the pandemic hit, we set up our first art in a workplace session at their new premises. As you can see the AFP team had a whale of a time.

        We had a great session participating in the Art at Work initiative with GHAT and continue to be delighted to work with them. 
        It was lovely to see and feel our team interacting in a completely different way and agree that this enhances wellbeing at work.
        We would highly recommend other businesses to consider supporting this.
