My name is Sally Anderson, Nicola’s mum. I work as a teacher with children experiencing a range of special needs. Having lived in Norfolk and London, I moved to Lancaster in 1990. As well as wanting to help Nicola, I have been to Thailand and met many of the children that 1Step2Step will hopefully be working with. You can see it in their eyes and feel a sense of hope despite the situation they are in. If these children can have the opportunity to show and develop their skills, they will surprise us. Long-term, I hope the project will support more families to continue to care for their own children.
