Our care never stops; it takes place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and Christmas time is no different for our dedicated nurses and carers.

As part of our 'Count Me In' appeal, we're sharing a new message from staff and those we support to show how much of a difference your support means at this special time of year. For door 2 on our Christmas countdown, here is a message from nurse Louise Dickety.

We must raise an additional £1m by April to ensure we can continue to provide our care to communities across Southampton and wider Hampshire. You can find out more about our appeal at www.countmein.org.uk
