This is a time when we celebrate the incredible work that our Shared Lives Carers do.

We would usually take this opportunity to get together as a Shared Lives family with an afternoon tea or picnic in the park, however this wasn't possible this year, so Mo and Diane paid all our carers a socially distanced visit this week with a little gift to show our appreciation.

Here are photos and comments from some of the carers. If you're having trouble viewing this, click here for a downloadable version.




You are so so thoughtful to bring us so lovely gifts! That beautiful plant is waiting in the sunshine to find its perfect spot! Thank you so much for your constant encouragement and support!  You've made a real difference! Many thanks, Avremi


A big thank you for the gifts. I was saying to Mo how well you have kept us all informed of well EVERYTHING. Steph


Thank you for the carnations, which have joined the flowers in our garden. Chris


My sweetpea has now been potted (away from the pests hopefully!)....the chocolate lasted until this morning, which is a record for me! Thankyou ladies; this was a really nice gesture. Myra


Thank you so much for both of your kind thoughts. Edrina and I with the girls appreciate all the support you give us. Joanna
