Hazel Brown, Head of Communities is awarded an MBE

Hazel Brown, Local Solutions MBE

We are immensely proud of our amazing colleague Hazel Brown, Hazel Brown, Head of Communities at Local Solutions, who has received an MBE from HRH The Prince of Wales for services to carers.

Hazel has played a pivotal role at Local Solutions over the last 24 years, developing a range of services that aim to improve the quality of life for carers in Liverpool. The Liverpool Carers Centre provides a safe space for all carers and their families, and a range of activities to support health and wellbeing, share experiences and feel connected.

In 2017 Hazel developed a pioneering idea called Mytime; the scheme provides respite opportunities for carers to enable them to take a much-needed break from their demanding caring roles. These opportunities include overnight stays at hotels, meals, afternoon teas and trips to theatres and cinemas.  For many Carers, this will be the first time that they have been able to take a break with confidence and experience these wonderful leisure opportunities and a chance of relaxation. 

Hazel's dedication and caring nature has improved the lives of many families and carers over the years - we are all very proud

Everyone enjoyed speeding down to Albert Dock in the Sir Bert Massie Wheelyboat and trying out the rafted canoes. They then made the most of the café with its fantastic views of the waterfront and people enjoying different activities on the water.
