Welcome to EalingHELP Minimize

The past week or so I've been busy in many different ways. We've got a lot more information on our Events Calendar - it was looking a bit sparse after the summer. Still a few people to chase up though.

Those of you that read the last entry here will be perhaps surprised to know that we didn't get much further with opening a bank account for Luke. There is a very interesting Drop-in Session coming up on Friday 23rd focussing on the Mental Capacity Act. I wish that I had known more about this before we started the bank application as a lot of concerns and questions about Luke were raised during the process. 

Please have a look at my blog on Luke's first week at St Johns. There's a huge amount to consider during this process and despite me working 'in the industry' there was a lot we hadn't thought about and I hope you'll find some of it useful.
