‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ is a song by Queen that I started to use to inspire others, when I shared the story of my eldest son Joe living a life that was designed in a way that made sense to him.
This was a strong message to the ‘powers that be’ that basically said that we need to continue doing the things that really matter to people and we need to trust the instincts of individuals to do what they believe is right for them.
We built the My Life charity on the same premise and over the last few months we have continued to trust and believe that individuals and families will do what is right for them. People have had to make huge sacrifices to enable their loved ones to remain safe and we have supported a wide range of people in many different flexible ways, such as:
The work has been done by some amazing volunteers who have worked so hard in all weathers to keep the charity going. Our staff teams out in the community have equally done an amazing job to keep people safe.
We have developed a recovery plan that explains what we are intending to do over the next few weeks, and we will need to all work together and learn what works and what doesn’t as we go along.
We already have seen an increase in people wanting to at least get back to some kind of normality and we are supporting each person in a way that makes sense to them. We are determined more than ever to keep going and be on hand to help you when you need us to.
Thank you all for your continued support,
