Terry Patterson

We are extremely saddened to announce that our North-West rep, Terry Patterson, passed away just before Christmas.

Terry was one of the driving forces behind NAWRA. He was a friend, a father, a comrade and a bloody good welfare rights worker.

He will be remembered fondly and hugely missed  by many members and by all of us on the NAWRA committee. Rest in peace Terry.

Greater Manchester Welfare Rights Advisers (GMWRAG) have also offered a heartfelt tribute on their website which you might also like to read.

This was taken in Downing St in 2009, when Gordon Brown held a reception for advice workers and Terry and others from the LGA adviser’s group were invited to attend. (Thanks to Gary Vaux for the photo and accompanying text.)
