Cecilia Adetunji

““Cecilia is clearly highly skilled at person centred care. In an alien situation, she excelled, organising support for an individual with learning disabilities so that they understood and could make choices about their end of life experience.” (Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards 2019, Judges' Special Recognition Award)”

Ellie Atherton

“I was looking forward to starting volunteering as I wanted to help out in any way I could. I met lots of great people and really value the friendships I have formed since I started volunteering.”

Rainbow parent
