SuccessES


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

- Dragonflies parent/carer comments

Attending the course helped with isolation and I built friendship groups. Given me confidence to take the next steps in my life"
"The Family Learning courses were invaluable to my children, we have learnt skills, bonded more as a family. I am very grateful to FSN!"
"I've learnt more about myself and others and more relaxed in groups. Discovered the real me! The tutor is inspirational and very caring. Being encouraged to volunteer has been an amazing and beneficial experience

- Community Learning attendees

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!
