Quotes from children and teachers

At school I like to use the drop in because it gets things off my chest and it’s nice to spend time with the other children in the drop in. When I see them again in the playground it’s nice because we all use drop-in, so I feel like they are my friends.

My Jigsaw4u support worker helped me overcome my fears and feel safer at home and school.

Home School Links child

My daughter started showing signs of anxiety when she was in Reception. Gradually over the next couple of years it got worse and she struggled with getting into school.

Jigsaw4u never judged us and always offered invaluable advice. They have been crucial in not only helping my daughter, but also by being there for me as a parent. Jigsaw4u has gone above and beyond in supporting our family.

Jigsaw4u's sessions helped me as they took me out of lessons and I knew I had someone to talk to.

It also reassured me to express my feelings in a talkative way. The fidget toys helped me to calm down in stressful times. I also felt that I had someone there for me, all the time, not just in sessions.

My support worker gave me different strategies to cope in unique ways such as glasses (different perspectives), which showed me how I felt. We had plenty of games to play and our sessions always made me feel like I was in a safe space.

He is no longer violent in school and is a lot less aggressive at home.

Your Home School Links support in school with our children and families has been fantastic! The children are so excited and look forward to your sessions, feedback has been so positive! Your transition group has been a life saver!

Gemma SidawayDesignated Safeguarding Lead and Family Support Leader, Cranmer Primary School

They have been invaluable when my children have had to face living with terminally ill parents or the heartache caused when a parent takes their own life.

The staff are so experienced and extremely caring, and the support for the children, their families and the school is beyond measure.

I would find it difficult to deal with these situations without their advice and practical help
