ADASS trustees and staff would like to thank everyone for their tributes to Harold and messages of support to us. We have had so many, personal and public.  They are a real comfort.  The tributes to Harold are now coming in with frequency: just looking at the twitter feed on our website says so much.

In terms of the immediate, we don’t plan to do anything from ADASS’ point of view until after the funeral. For now, our thoughts are with his family. We feel a great loss at Harold’s passing but also the warmth and support of so many mutual friends, colleagues and partners.

We need to mourn. Then we need to work with you and with everyone who cares about social care to do what Harold wanted.
