“To be informed, to be able to refer yourself, to be assisted with obtaining support services, to be assisted with having your concerns taken seriously by service providers, to be in a position to coordinate services available to meet your needs – all these give you some of the power we all depend on to cope with unique personal and practical difficulties.” Ethel Temby MBE, STAR Founder
