Brenda’s lockdown garden

During lockdown, Brenda was stuck inside a lot and missed going out. With help from Marcus, her support worker, she created an indoor garden. Marcus said: “Brenda and I missed our trips out together, so we brought the outside in.”

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)”
