Babies have freedom to play and explore. The sessions get us out and about.

- PACT Parent Voice

It's made a big difference. My confidence and self-esteem have improved. I've made lots of friends - especially with other volunteers. (Taken from the 2022 volunteer survey)

- FSN Volunteer

It has brought me out of my shell. It has made me feel really valued as a person and part of a team. I'm more fulfilled in life.

- FSN Volunteer

We love to play outside. Also painting and playing in the play kitchen. The sessions have helped my child come out of their shell.

The girls had a lovely time and were able to try a variety of activities.
