Testimonials & Reviews

I really enjoy coming to this group. I know that I can get the support I need from the workers and know who I can speak to if I need it. I would feel really alone if I didn't come to this group

Young Carer Aged 11

I'm happy that my son is able to play in a safe and fun environment at a group that is free, he doesn't go to nursery yet so it’s essential that he can socialise.

I am interacting with other parents, my son has definitely built more confidence and is starting to socialise with other children.
