Quotes

We are really looking forward to meeting the Lord Mayor and giving the children the chance to learn a little bit about local history and also to find out more about what is going on in the communities in which they live. From Caudwell Children’s point of view I am hoping that the visit gives the Lord Mayor a chance to see the work that we do within the community and how families of disabled children are benefiting from the services that we provide.”

Caudwell Children, Family Services Manager, Steve Jackson

We are looking forward to the chance to meet the Lord Mayor and also getting the opportunity to speak to him about the work of Caudwell Children. They have helped Josh in numerous ways from providing social activities which have increased his confidence no end, funding equipment such as Josh’s wheelchair which has made going out much easier for him to helping us find out about the carer’s premium helping us save money. We just want more families living with disabled children to know that there is a range of help and services out there and Caudwell Children can help them find what is right for them.”
