Darren M., personal assistant to L. | Bespoke Training: March 2017


I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your excellent work and support both prior and following the Care Quality Commission’s inspection in September of this year. It has been a learning curve for all of us and your professional input and thoroughness in ensuring completion of many of the actions identified, has been invaluable.  

Thank you again for all your support.

Your skills and knowledge passed to the team were invaluable, thank you very much for helping out.
Debbie S. |Support and Brokerage Service Solo Support Services Ltd


Thank you for the support you gave us throughout the CHC assessment process.

We really feel that the assessment reflected M’s needs. 

It was really useful to have the draft assessment ahead of it going to panel. It was also good to see how quickly the process could be completed.

Parent of a 7-year-old child with complex needs.


Last November 2015 I met with Corine Koppenol at my home to discuss a combined personal budget for my complex, life limited daughter. After much turbulence with both care provision and local hospital I decided to work towards a transition plan for my 17-year-old daughter to leave her residential /school provision and move back into home with me. Corine would guide this plan and advice professionals on how to adopt an integrated person commissioned budget.

I always felt fully supported by Corine and found her a positive life force in a rather stale situation. Corine continued to work very hard to explore the possibilities of how we could find the right house and always promoted an integrated approach to show how well it could work.

Corine and I will now start working on budgets, care plans and costings and I know I can rely on her expertise and support
