We are very sad to learn that Max Neill passed away on 29th February, 2016.

As an experienced community living advisor and leader in the development of person centred approaches, Max was a much-respected member of the research team. Max’s gentle presence served always to remind us of the power and importance of connected communities.

We will miss him.

Our thoughts are with his family.

One thought on “Max Neill

  1. Max was a good man – we were so lucky to meet him and enjoy so many good times together – our thoughts are with his family at this sad time. Max was so generous to us in sharing both his time and knowledge, in particular we think about his important academic work for the Big Society project and his joint projects with Helen Sanderson around a new wave of circles of support.

    Every time we hear the words ‘circles of support’ we will think of Max – his work will live on and we will all benefit from his time here.
