What parents say about the programme:
“My daughter is a different child today to when she started. She had hit a wall, and I just felt the project got her over that by its approach.” – Parent
“It was uplifting for her. It has given her more confidence in herself, in her own abilities. She still is talking about the experience. It was a safe space for her.” – Parent
