Making family time precious

Making family time precious

I am Dave Kelly, 39, a social work personal advisor in Leeds and I work with the leaving care team. My dad, 74, is retired and Danny, 25, is a train conductor. My Dad moved in with me 18 months ago after my Mum moved on to the next level. I inherited my nephew Danny as well as he had moved in to support him in caring for her in her last months. I have four bedrooms so the logical thing was for them to both move in with me. We live in Holbeck in South Leeds and I have the nippers - Sonny, 6, Thea, 12 - at weekends to give their mum a break and because I love having them around.
