We hold her in the highest esteem and know that our young man is in safe hands when being cared for by Sue, enabling us to take time for ourselves. Our son has built an amazing relationship with Sue which is not easy for someone as profoundly disabled. Sue has always been and continues to be an asset, not only to our package but to Allied as a whole. A carer in the truest sense of the word. Our thanks and respect go to Sue, the world cannot have enough Sue’s”
