Feedback on our services

The team helped to facilitate a transition from school to college for Zoe. This was very successful and the team were very proud of Zoe, who received a certificate of congratulations from us.

Zoe's Mum got in touch to say: "Thank you for all your help in supporting Zoe with her transition from school to college. We would have been lost without your help."

The team has worked with a service user called Jack, to overcome his anxiety. Over time and with gradual and regular support from the team Jack became less withdrawn and even participated in community activities, which was a huge achievement.
