Welcome to EalingHELP Minimize

I’m writing this en route to Leicester for a Supported Loving Network meeting. This is a subject dear to my heart and so often swept under the carpet. 

I know when I’ve tried raising this with the Power Group it hasn’t gone that well. Yet the whole area is fraught with problems and leaves a lot of people potentially at risk.

Hopefully I’ll return with more information and will be sharing that with you soon. 

This is also the first time I’ve attempted to write a post on my phone. A lot can happen in 10 years but my typing on a phone still needs some work!
