Gavin had been living in Honiton in Devon, since 1999. Brandon Trust started supporting him in 2011.
Gavin lived with John, and they had known each other since they were young men. Over the years, Gavin’s team of staff supported him with his declining health, alongside his family who were fully involved in his support.
Hi. I’m Abby and I’m the area manager for Oxfordshire. The garden at one of the services I manage in the Bicester area, was desperately in need of some love. The housing provider keeps the garden tidy, but they don’t make it ‘special’.
Hi. I’m Niki. I’ve worked for Brandon for over 20 years, and recently moved into an acting locality manager role in the Gloucestershire area.
When I took on my new position, I was asked to think about how we could improve the appearance of the front of the house I was working in, to make it feel more homely and attractive for the people supported there. It’s important that houses feel like a home, and gardens are an important part of that.
The team can never get enough of shopping second hand and this year, we’re joining in with Sustainable Fashion Week - an event we are proud to be a part of, and one that we hope will contribute to a better way of shopping.
