Lucy Terry, who is the niece of Lulu Onions, made a contribution to the ‘Don’t Bring Lulu’ story.
Lucy recalled visiting her aunt in various care homes in East Sussex,
‘I have memories of white corridors and plastic banisters and endless stairwells.
Sometimes I’m surprised at how well she’s looked after…. then she gets moved for the umpteenth time and I realise I’m right to be cynical’.
Now Lucy is a senior researcher working for NLGN, a think tank specialising in local government.
In her post she argues that seven years of budget cuts in Britain has forced local councils to be more efficient in the way that they work. She believes a new approach is needed in order to make local government more productive and new forms of collaboration could help.
