High Sheriff visits Bury Drop In
Pictured L-R: Clive Eminson, Jackie, Designated Safeguarding Lead/Trustee, and Roz Eminson, High Sheriff of Suffolk.
Last Friday we were pleased to welcome Roz Eminson, High Sheriff of Suffolk to Bury Drop In. After her visit, Roz thanked us in an email saying, "Thank you so much for giving us your time to talk through some of the major issues and difficulties you face when trying to help your clients. It was interesting to see the way you work together with different agencies...I was also pleased to...have conversations with your trustees which certainly provided some harsh facts... Meeting the young lady who was a ballerina and hearing her talk about her situation highlighted very clearly just how difficult it can be to help those whose lives have become so complicated.
