I am the mother, and have continuing power of welfare attorney, for a man Freespace provide care for.  One of my son’s support workers suggested I join the Board. I am now on the general purposes committee. I also belong to a couple of Carers and Health and Social Care organisations.

I would like to see Freespace maintaining good support of my son. I think that very often boards and executives don’t know what goes on at the grass roots and I do think that this is something that the boards should know and influence for the good.
