Her contribution towards person centred planning and developing confidence and comradeship has been of great value. The understanding she has of people with physical, sensory disabilities, communication difficulties and mental health issues has made a difference to many individuals.

Because of my particular condition I find it hard to socialise however I look forward to the sessions and enjoy the companionship of others and working on the various projects

It’s a pleasure to watch her coax the ladies and gentlemen to their full potential. She is full of praise for all of them. I also love the way she guides them when they sometimes get a little shy or unsure about what they’re doing. They have done some amazing artwork which has been used in local shop windows and also throughout the building which houses the day centre.
