Celebrating 25 years of supporting adults with learning disabilities in Maldon
Essex Cares Ltd’s (ECL) ECL Maldon Day Centre today (26 October) celebrated 25 years of providing care to adults with learning disabilities at the centre and in the community.
Staff and customers of the centre were treated to a luncheon to mark the occasion, with some long standing staff members recognised for numerous years of service.
Lisa Ball has been supporting customers at ECL Maldon Day Centre for 17 years and Lyn Gallifant for 12 years. At its peak, ECL Maldon provided support for around 50 customers a week. Now, the centre has a regular service for 30 customers.
Jonathan West, Local Business Manager of ECL Madlon, said the event was in recognition of the years of history both customers and staff had.
We’ve had many happy years providing support to adults with disabilities both within the centre and in the community. Today was a day to mark that and it was brilliant to see so many past staff and customers back again to help us celebrate.
Keir Lynch, Chief Executive of ECL, said the company was growing to meet the demands of the county and was proud of facilities like ECL Maldon that had stood the test of time.
We have 28 centres that support communities across Essex, along with reablement and equipment services, and our offerings continue to grow as we meet the needs of an increasing population.
