Farewell to Marguerite

Today we bid farewell to our Counselling Manager, Marguerite McCarthy, who is retiring after seventeen years with One Family.

Marguerite, sometimes described as a quiet subversive; pioneered unplanned pregnancy and post-abortion counselling with her predecessor Sherie de Burgh, supporting thousands of women, men and children throughout her career. She leaves in place a dedicated, professional, and capable team to support service users into the future. The staff, board and service users of One Family want to thank Marguerite for her work, guidance and friendship and we wish her a long and happy retirement. Thank you
