- My Time Now young people's comments

"Volunteering at the Health and Wellbeing drop ins I have supported attendees with engaging into activities, not only at FSN but in the local community. It’s great to have access to all the activities and information not only for our service users but also for myself. I really enjoy supporting the community and being part of the hub team!
“I have come along and attended various courses at FSN but also attended the computer and Health and Wellbeing drop ins. Coming here as made me in such a better place, everyone is so supportive! I feel so much more confident, I have found myself again. I love it here!"

"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!"

- My Time Too children's comments

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.
