Hi to everyone at the office to start with.
I wanted to just say a huge thank you to everyone for the great work you do and the support and info you and the support workers help with.
We have had help from Karen Balfe who has been such a mind of info to help us with our son who has aspergers. Without her help we wouldnt be where we are today without her. Also recently i vicky have been off of my feet which now looks more like a long term thing. Not really knowing where to turn I turned to Karen and she was fantastic. She will be sadly missed but i hope she does well in the future. (to Karen, your strength is an inspiration to all the lives you touch thank you)
WE would also like to thank young adult carers who our daughter is a member off and i am sure without all youngsters who are all in the same boat to which they all seem to support each other. Gina would have no doubt have lost the plot by now and i am sure she would have taken another attempt on her own life and maybe WE wouldnt have been so lucky the next time. She loves being with young adults who have the same worries as herself. Whom care for family members whom have difficulties of all ranges. They all have a fantastic time just doing what normal kids do and its somewhere they dont have to hide that they are upset or worried about the person they are caring for. Young Carers Team are all approachable friendly and dont look down on the kids because they have had to grow up all to quickly. Thank you Rob & Team your help is priceless.
Without all of these people who give there time there hearts and their knowledge Bedfordshire would be a darker lonelier place for many many carers alike.
for anyone to say that Carers in Beds does not help to the best of their ability then they have not dealt with Carers in Beds at all and should take a few days to just see what these people do for people like me who have children with problems or also like me have disabilities of their own.
thank you again keep up the good work.
Vicky and Jonathan Hills
p.s Gina says hurry up next young adult carers xxxx
