"I find working with [the Putney team] excellent, they communicate with us, they have a great relationship with the people we support who attend the base, they attend reviews, network meetings, and inform us of any concerns. One of the people we support can be late getting ready, they are understanding (at pick up) and will wait for him, knowing how upset he will get if he misses his day service" Vivienne Donald | Head of Service, Southview Close, MacIntyre Care
"I am confident that the vulnerable clients helped by this service will be in the best possible hands" Cllr Jim Madden | Wandsworth Borough Council's spokesperson for adult social care
