• Creating a Community Where Everyone Belongs

“We must continue to listen to all members of our society”- My Life founder and CEO, Caroline Tomlinson

Its nearly time for the summer holiday season and what a warm up we’re having with this beautiful weather! We’re delighted so many of our members and learners have managed to complete their expedition for their Duke of Edinburgh Award in the Lakes this week. They’ve had a great time  experiencing a wide range of new opportunities and challenges – we’re so proud of you all.

Who would have thought that way back in 2012, when a few families, including mine, sat around a kitchen table and dreamt of an organisation that would enable them to have more choice and control in their lives, to be able to live the best lives that they could, that we would be where we are now!

The recent BBC report which found that many disabled people have felt forgotten during the pandemic is a stark reminder that we must continue to listen to all members of our society and ensure that we keep important lines of support open, through even the hardest of times.

I know that this still feels like a very uncertain time for many of our families. As we continue to navigate our way through the pandemic we’re focused more than ever before on listening to your views and opinions. My Life has been built on the feedback of our community members, so please do keep it coming.

As the summer sun shines and the flowers and vegetables continue to blossom, I hope that you are all able to enjoy the holidays and do the things that make you happy!

I think we all knew it before, but for me, the incredible things that I have seen so many individuals do to support others during this unprecedented time, the things that people have done for me and my family, really do underline what we believe here at My Life. Together, we are better.

Enjoy the summer.

Caroline Tomlinson,

My Life Founder and CEO

    My son has had a fantastic time at My Life. He has learnt new skills and has grown in confidence over the past year. He actually agreed to go on the college trip to the lakes, which he was able to discuss with enthusiasm. He obviously thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks for all help the staff have given him.
