I have just experienced the importance of Family and friends care for keeping families together.

Sometimes life throws up remarkable stories. In 2009 I became involved in a case where for complex reasons, the mother was in Calgary, the daughter was in Kampala and the son was in Slaithwaite! A lot happened between then and 2016. A lot of thought, lateral thinking, honesty, small steps, plus imaginative and committed people including Pat Short and Ranjit Uppal lead to Charles going to live with Chelsea in Kampala.

Without kinship care with his aunt in Uganda, Charles might have been left in Huddersfield till he was 18.

Then in late 2016 the family were reunited in Calgary. And I have just been privileged to spend the weekend with them, to hear their story and to remind Charles with the Town shirt that after Calgary, Huddersfield is the only place to be! Sadly Charles is heavily into basketball!

Somewhere along the line the grace of God was much in evidence.
