  • Alex Cann

  • Martin Emery

  • Nick Meir

    7:00am - 10:00am

    Nick says "Caring is so much more than delivering practical essentials. Just ‘being there’ provides a tonic of companionship which we all crave as human beings. And that is why Care Radio is so important. Knowing you can switch on and listen to a friendly voice at any time, day or night, really does make a difference to those involved in receiving or giving care"
