About Together Matters

Together Matters is a small organisation with big ideas about the importance of talking, learning and working together to help create positive change in people’s lives. It was set up in 2016, by Christine Towers, who has used her 40 years’ experience in support and development work to create planning guides and other resources for people with disabilities, their families and supporters.
