Scope and content

Writing to Chris Burch of the Sue Ryder Foundation about matters arising from accommodating a [severely] disabled individual. She had called the Marist Fathers three times for help but they could not gain access to the building. Fr Birch suggests a number of measures to ensure such guests are safe and cared for in the Sue Ryder place. The Pilgrim Bureau did not accept her booking because they do not have the faculties, although £250,000 is to be spent on improvements.
