Johns Campaign

John’s Campaign

The trust supports John’s Campaign and shares in their belief that carers should not just be ‘allowed’ but should be welcomed. They are the experts in the person for whom they care, and best outcomes are likely when they work in partnership with the medical or social professionals.
