It was both a sad and happy goodbye on Friday as we said Au Revoir to Karen one of our fantastic Development Leader collegues as she began the journey into early retirement.

Karen had been with us as a Development Leader since September 2014, and during that time was a popular and respected colleague who always had time for a chat and even a bit of fun within the workplace. Karen was however driven and committed to her work with the people we support and families. Karen would often go above and beyond for the people we support and the teams she supported and it was clear whilst she was a manger she was also a team player who was happy to muck in and do the same roles she asked of others.

We shall all miss that passion for the work we do but wish Karen well during her well deserved retirement, and hope it is full of adventure and laughter.

All the very best from everyone at Partners for Inclusion.
