Testimonials - what people say about us
We've been given permission to share this amazing feedback from one of the organisations that we work alongside, to support local children and young people.
They asked us to share it with our donors and fundgivers, so that they know just how much of a difference their donation makes.
We'd just like to add though, that the changes and differences seen are made through the very hard work and trust in their process that each child, young person and their family has in the work xx
'Thank you for your effective support for one of our most vulnerable pupils and their family. The trusting relationship that you fostered during the sessions and engagement with the pupil’s family and school staff, provided vital education and emotional support.
You helped the family to openly reflect on and rationalise past conflicts, and develop problem solving skills. As a consequence, they are becoming more respectful and accepting of themself and others and are beginning to cultivate empathy and respect for thoughts and feelings of others.
We will definitely be drawing on these skills to further support our pupils and families in the future.'
Assistant Head & SENDCo Primary School, of Marianne, aged 8
'Thank you for successfully meeting Jayden "where he is".
You are very alive to the impact of attachment issues and worked sensitively with him, as he had formed a very close, strong and dependable relationship with you. You were very sensitive to breaks, always holding him in mind, and allowed a lot of time to work sensitively towards a positive ending.'
