Customer Feedback

News ID: 674

A big thank you to Karen Bennett at Sefton New Directions for her positive feedback on the support and training our team provided during the implementation of CHARMS™:
'I would like to thank you all for your support with the implementation. It was overwhelming at the start for us transferring from paper files to Charms but you have all been amazing, supporting us through the transition, always making us feel like nothing was too much trouble. I would also like to add the training has been excellent too not only for the Shared Lives team but also for the Shared Lives carers who were nervous at the start with the transfer but after they received the training they were happy and eager to get started. Once again thank you.'
