Working with Policy Partners Project to develop and maintain our online policy and procedure platform has been a real joy. The team are highly professional, efficient and responsive with a thorough knowledge of adult social care law, policy and guidance. The service they provide is clearly built around the customer and they personalise it to meet the unique needs of each of their customers. The quality of the product is second to none and the customer service is fantastic. I would recommend Policy Partners Project to anyone seeking an online hosting platform.
