Founded in Birmingham in 1973 by Anthony Collins, whose Christian faith motivated him to set up a firm to serve individuals and the community, our business started with a commitment to serve individuals and the community in a way not seen before. Since then, we have pursued our social purpose through the work we do and how we do it. We are proud of our purpose and of our values.
