WHO ARE WE?

In our society, over the last fifty years, life has changed immensely.

Distance, family breakdown, caring responsibilities and our 24/7 culture have all

contributed to less connectedness between families and communities.

Isolation and loneliness are increasingly the symbols of our society, for the elderly,

those with disabilities, carers and even younger people as well.

There is a wonderful African proverb: “It takes a village to raise a child” – while it recognises that parenting is a communal affair, I take it further in my belief that we should be ‘family’ to others in our community, giving and receiving mutual help and support.

Being part of a village is hard work, but our lives and the lives of those around us are richer for it.
