 A Message from our Founder

 Mandy Bayliffe

Mandy Bayliffe

"I have come to realise the courage and determination shown by carers and families   every hour of every day.

  I would like to offer all
  disabled people, their carers and families, the holiday, respite, support and advice they  deserve"
 
  Mandy's ambition was to see this in operation
  within her lifetime.
  Regrettably she died on August 28th 1994 before her dreams could be fulfilled.
