"The service you provide to the community is one of a kind and we hope there will be more sessions we can attend soon!" - Mother of under 5 year old who attended our mother and child sessions.
“ The difference in her has been very noticeable – she chats about the activities she’s been doing and has continued doing them at home. Even our GP remarked on the change in her positivity”

"Today we attended an art therapy course and my child's engagement and interaction blew my mind and warmed my heart. From learning to play the guitar, twinkling away on the piano, making pottery and watercolour art, having one to one adult workers who show a genuine interest and actually care was so amazing" - Mother of under 5 year old who attended our mother and child sessions.

Carer of young person who attended an SEND Holiday Arts Workshop
“I know I would have loved to have your services when she was little. It was hard because there was nothing out there in terms of SEN for pre-school and ordinary groups did not cater. You both are fantastic and offer such a great service. I look forward to seeing you grow the business”
Mother of young person with SEND who has just started the Bespoke At-Home programme

"Thank you for putting together the Arts workshop and creating your new organisation. She had such a lovely day and made such beautiful things. She can't wait for the next one!"
"Working with my mother on a regular basis has made a huge difference to her general well being. She is so happy and looks forward to the sessions each week. I have seen an improvement in her memory and lucidity as the projects are all catered to her mental stimulation, a vital medicine for someone living with Dementia."
"I hope the workshop is the first of many. He was so delighted with all the activities and how they were mixed up...he also got experience of chatting to different staff which is good. If only he could do that everyday. Thank you both!"
"Thank you for taking her away and making it the most amazing week for her. Thank you for everything you are doing to make her trip very special"
