31 years ago, Peter was concerned that the only option for many people was to move into a residential home. ‘Forcing people to leave their homes for personal care felt inconsiderate and unnecessary to me,’ says Peter.
This caring attitude feeds into Universal Care’s selection of staff (and won the company the prestigious Dignity in Care Award for two years running). It also underpins Peter’s involvement with local causes. A long term friend of the Chilterns MS Centre, Universal Care became a Corporate Friend in May 2017.
‘Whenever I visit the Centre, I see the marvellous work the staff and volunteers do in caring for people with MS. I am delighted to support the charity through my business.’
