A description of a close friendship between two people who attended the same day centre. The friendship was under threat because of bureaucratic considerations and this article is written by a person who became involved in trying to safeguard the friendship. The author claims that this was made harder because the two people involved refused to state that they wanted to continue seeing each other. He argues that planning and organisation by services should take considerations like these into account. Keywords: Professionals, Friendship
