Together, we can improve the quality of both social care and education for all within our communities.

I am now retired but retain a keen interest in both the effectiveness of social care and the value of education for learners of all ages. I spent over 40 years working in different areas of education and, in retirement, I cared for my ailing wife until her untimely death. My studies and experiences have increased my belief in the importance of both these topics for improving living standards within modern communities.
