Edensor Care Centre in Clacton is part of the Diagrama Foundation, it provides residential, nursing and respite care on a permanent or temporary basis.

Xanthe and Trisha are doing very well in their jobs, it has been lovely to see the Edensor staff team pull together to welcome them. Wendy the Inclusive Employment Consultant at ECL has been very helpful, she supported the girls at the induction, providing full support at first and then stepping back as the induction progressed.
