Decorating our Waiting Room
Our adult clients, and the parents and siblings of our younger clients, have to wait in a room, sometimes for an hour, that is not calming or interesting. It has no windows and although it is light enough, there is no sense of comfort or distraction. Nobody feels at home in our waiting room!
Possibly only a week depending on how we plan it
Charity information: CARIS Islington
We want our clients and their families to have a pleasant experience of being in our building.
The waiting room will be interesting and welcoming and people will enjoy sitting in there
