- My Time Too children's comments

I have been at FSN since 2010. When I first came I knew about it because the fellowship was founded on Christian principles 80 years ago. Volunteering has changed my life. It is not only the staff who are always there to help you when you are at your lowest and feel down, but it is also a place where you can come and meet people. Volunteering for FSN has changed my life.

I do feel that safeguarding and wellbeing of the children is fully prioritised and staff go to great lengths to support families and children. The Nursery demonstrates empathy and works hard to ensure fairness for families/children here. Really stands out as 'safe space' for children.

It was really nice to meet other families In our group, in the same situation as us, "I was terrified to start with but it was an extremely fun day"
"My little girl has really benefitted from being with other young people in similar situations. She knows she is not alone and it's ok to be sad and angry. She talks about Nanna now a lot more"
"Dragonflies has made an invaluable difference to my son, I think he was in a dark place and Dragonflies has let the light shine for him again

"I started to volunteer with FSN in the Health and Wellbeing Hub in July 2018. In September I started a Level 3 course at FSN through another of their projects and I am also looking into doing a degree in psychology next year. Once I complete the degree I hope to start a new career path and help others and work towards removing the barriers to mental health. The course started me on this new path and changed my life!"
