The Commission joined HTT two years ago as a way of ensuring it was meeting the needs of all its applicants, irrespective of traditional language barriers. The logo has been successfully incorporated into all of our information literature and is on display throughout the office. We have found this approach to be extremely effective in contributing towards our equality commitments as well as general membership of HTT providing invaluable training, support and value for money.
