The good work we do today owes its existence to the love and dedication of our founder ‐ Hilary Marsden.

Hilary was a young Registered General Nurse with two small children when she took a nursing home job in the 1970s that was both to horrify her ‐ and have far‐reaching consequences that have brightened the lives of many people.

The conditions at the nursing home were appalling; Hilary made futile attempts at improvement but still went home and cried each night for the plight of the disabled children living there.
