How we make a difference, in the words of children and families we have worked with..
"Flourishing Friends is the first course I have ever been on and I feel much less anxious about doing more now to help my children to learn." (Parent)
"The LEaP Centre is brilliant, I played football with my dad again. I feel safe here." (Child age 10 coming to see dad)
"LEaP helped us to get to know each other again." (Non-resident dad using contact service to see his son)
"The centre and staff have provided lots of support and information to us. I cannot praise the staff enough, professional, knowledgeable and welcoming. I feel so much better about the future." (Resident parent bringing child for contact)
"Daisy Chain has helped me realise how much shouting and arguing can affect children emotionally. I won’t be letting it happen in front of her anymore." (DAISYchain Mum)
"I know how to spread my time more evenly between all my children now. I’ve noticed a BIG difference, in the way we all are with each other, it’s better." (Parental Support Mum)
