I pledge to go and visit or call someone I know every week that lives alone and is isolated due to physical disabilities. Whenever I am waiting for something to start or for an appointment I go through my phone and send texts asking my friends how they are doing and if they are sick or feeling down I make sure I find the time to go and see them. Lisa Jones
Tommy I promise to promote your example in my daily life and in my placements as a student nurse. Chris
I pledge with all my heart to support the person and their family. By listening and the knowledge I have learned can hopefully help them to understand. Lorna
I pledge to recognise the importance of every individual, and what a privilege it is to hear peoples’ stories. I promise to be kind to everyone I speak to and to try to find a way to help, even if it’s just a listening ear. Sarah McDermott
