Michael Clancy

Registered Manager & Head of Tailored Support

Michael has spent all his working life in the care sector working in various roles, He joined the about with friends team in December 2015. In that time he has seen the organisation grow and develop enhancing the life’s of it’s members, it’s a privilege to be part of an organisation that listens to its members ensuring their voices are heard.

Having spent many years in school with little improvements in I’s behaviour and speech, in just a few weeks with you the improvements in both areas are plain to see. Please continue as you are, as life at the moment for us as a family is greatly improved because of your input.

I just cannot thank you enough for taking K my daughter so that she could have fun with her friends on holiday in Milton Keynes, […] it made her extremely happy.

Selfishly for me it gave my wife a much sought after period of respite exhausted after 16 years of constant care. Complete respite is dependent upon the knowledge that your child is in safe professional caring hands. The ‘about with friends’ staff impress me because they display such enthusiastic vocational attitudes towards their care.

After 30 years of trying to get P engaged in activities, he is now, under your care, beginning to grow like a great Oak tree.

It was a massive decision for his family to make and by choosing AWF it means they trust totally in the service. I am of the opinion that AWF is the only provision in the county for D and he is very happy to attend.

I’ve got my life back

Over the last five years I have had a fortnightly, 2 hour designated gardening slot. I highly value your service and ethos.

About with Friends and you particularly, have done some great work with excellent outcomes for D. I was particularly pleased to hear that you are working on integration with the Youth Group as I felt he would miss out on peer interaction if he didn’t come to college.

This is the best transition I have had for a student in the whole five years I have taught 6th formers!

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and everyone else that supported H on the recent trip – she had an amazing time. I enjoyed look at the Twitter feed to see what you had been up to.
