One thought on “Policies and resources”

  1. Hi, I read an article in the Daily Mail yesterday about your centre and Lucy Newham. I wanted to find out more about your centre. I am a manager of a day care centre for adult with learning disabilities which includes Downs on the Isle of Skye. Keep up the good work.
