Quotes

"That's why I'm pleased to be able to offer some funding towards this thought-provoking campaign."
"Changing people's behaviour is not an easy job as they have to change their mentality and their way of living and behaving," he said. "Having access to safe water, good sanitation and better hygiene is so important because these things change people's lives. My role is going to change the way that people think about disability and their attitudes. They listen to me now when I talk to them and they respect me more now."
"It is no longer a last resort, but a respected part of a continuum of ‘housing with care’, which is enabling people to lead bigger and more fulfilling lives."
