SuccessES


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

I have been supported through my career, given so many opportunities and different steps.

- Taken from staff survey 2024

I enjoy coming to PACT, meeting other parents so we can share our experiences, it helps us get out of the house too. The staff are kind and knowledgeable. When my baby is old enough for nursery I would like to volunteer to help run a group.

- PACT parent

What an amazing nursery! All three of my children have attended this nursery and I cannot fault them. Each Individual staff member past and present have been amazing, the children are well looked after the staff are always happy to help. The children are always happy! Definitely recommend this nursery to all friends with little ones!
