Appendix 13: Acknowledgements

I wish to acknowledge my gratitude to the members of the Greater Manchester NHS Resilience Hub. It was set up in response to the Attack in 2017 to co‑ordinate care and support for thousands of children, young people and adults whose mental health or emotional wellbeing was affected. That is a role the Hub continued to perform throughout the Inquiry. It provided tireless assistance to witnesses, families and others to support them through the traumatic evidence that was heard about the Attack and the emergency response. I am greatly indebted to them.

The Inquiry was assisted by many contributions from members of the public who followed the evidence and provided helpful insights on aspects of the hearings. I wish in particular to thank those who took the time to contact the Inquiry and share their own experiences with my team. I would especially wish to thank Jeremy Cowen, whose experiences of working as a paramedic provided an important contribution to the evidence I heard on the Care Gap and the recommendations I have made.
