As a recognised leading case manager she is frequently invited to speak at National and International events.

Driven by a passion to ensure that those with catastrophic and complex injuries are given the opportunity to live their lives to the full, in 1997 Maggie established a local nursing service for the community funded by charitable donations, which provides nursing care within a patient’s home. In 2011 she established the Oxford and Bristol Groups of The Silverlining Charity providing social opportunities and challenges for clients with brain injury, which has a client group of 50 service users at present.
Recent events have included adults and children with complex catastrophic injuries skiing in La Plagne, taking a South African Safari and volunteering in a special needs orphanage, and surfing in Cornwall. The trips have demonstrated the huge rehabilitation benefits of holidays for individuals and their family effected by catastrophic injury and are now annual events true to the CCMS motto that Life’s for Living!
