Testimonials

Parent Testimonial

The service provided my son with a safe and reassuring space to express his thoughts, feelings and emotions in an age appropriate manner, to a professional and underestanding person and which helped to comfort him and afford him a better insight of events and experiences he had endured as a result of domestic upheaval.

Parent Testimonial

I found the whole atmosphere of the children's grief centre very calming and comforting. XXXX felt that she had plenty of space to talk openly and let [Support Worker] into her confidence easily. It was a God sent. There was nothing I could find that wasn't helpful about the service. Very well organised. A pleasure to go in there on a morning, calming and peaceful. Staff all wonderful and so kind and helpful. The support that XXXX got from [Support Worker] has made her so much more confident and I believe helped her to deal with her father's death.
