Testimonials

Just wanted to say thank you.  Thomas has said, when CAMHS signed him off he felt like his security net was gone.  He said you have made him feel like it could be coming back.  He was listening to you and thinks that you seemed to understand better that other services have.  Again, thank you

Testimonials

It is an activity that I enjoy. I enjoy supporting people, I meet new people & I have made friends. When there are enough leaders there, I don’t have to be there every week.
