On Monday 17th July 2017 our Wisbech centre was officially opened by the Mayor of Wisbech, Councillor Steve Tierney (pictured above).
The day was a huge success where prospective families, members of the public and individuals who already use our service enjoyed taking a look around the facility which is the first of its kind in the fenland town of Wisbech.
“This is absolutely brilliant and I welcome The Helping Hands Group arriving in the area. This is a town like most I imagine, where people need help and this is an organisation with a fantastic reputation.” Said the Mayor.
He continued “In 2017 we shouldn’t be having families travel away in order to get the right provision for their loved ones, there brings a stress in unnecessary traveling, so to have this fantastic facility on our doorstep is brilliant and exactly what we need.”
Group Director Suzanne Gilby who has worked tirelessley in order to bring the provision into Fenland said “The Helping Hands Group was born to put a service into the community which should have already been put in place. Why should adults with disabilities have to go into a main stream college or sit at home struggling? We all know how important progression is in life and independance is the key factor here which is a skill set every human being should have the right to learn.”
She continued “If this centre helps just one family, then to me its done its job.”
