Quotes from our families

Our daughter’s confidence has grown so much, and we have had many comments from people outside of the home too who have noticed positive changes.

Home-life with our child has really improved and is much more relaxed and enjoyable for us all.

Parent of child who received Adoption Play Therapy

It's been great getting to know each other and discovering our shared interests. We never talk about the young person's past experiences in the care system because that's their story to tell, but we have a lot of fun just hanging out and various doing activities together.

Independent Visitor

I enjoy working with the young people because it gives them a great opportunity to be themselves

Independent Visitor

Every now and again, (and this is the best bonus) it is obvious that the child really values being both heard and listened to.
