The first MHL Scotland Retreat took place on 14th August 2014. The retreat was a great success, providing an opportunity for participants of the Leadership Support and Community development programme to celebrate, network, share, connect and plan future collaborations and directions. The participants shared with one another the developments they have been taking forward. They were asked to fast forward to 2016 and visualise MHL in practice – what would this look like? Clearly many of the MHL associates have talents for drama and poetry. One group composed this poem about welcoming someone into a care home.
