Penny Souster from St. Augustine’s RC Church spoke at our Delegates Assembly and Accountability Assembly in 2015. Afterwards she said:
“My experience of speaking at the Assembly was filled with a mixture of emotions. I had witnessed many negative aspects of working in a care home in MK and speaking about them to a wide and varied audience was both relieving and revealing to them, I hope, and widened their scope about the kind of care they would plan for both their elderly loved ones and themselves in the future.
“The audience was very receptive to my disclosures and I was emotionally moved by their acknowledgement, affirmation and applause.
“Since then changes for the better in living wages for care workers and others are being implemented by the government which makes my very small part in bringing it about worthwhile.”
