Farewell and Thank you to Angela Jones

We would also like to say a huge 'Thank you' to Angela Jones who has moved on from Supportive Parents. As you will know Angela has been a tremendous help to parents and carers on Supportive Parents Information and Support Line and a great support to parents at our Support Group meetings and Springboard settings as well as supporting Jackie Oxley with development work in North Somerset. We are sure that many of you will be sad to see Angela leave and grateful for her input in North Somerset. Thank you Angela, we wish you much happiness and all the best for the future.
