Quotations re the newsletter

Thank you for a fab and informative day.

Anon, from the family information and activities day

It was really good to be able to talk to professionals in a relaxed neutral setting and for them to see my children outside of school.

Anon, from the family information and activities day

Thanks for organising the session today which was very helpful. I've submitted a request for an assessment.

Personal Budgets Session

It was good to be at a workshop where everyone could benefit – families and ‘professionals’. We were sitting together listening to someone else share their wise words and there was no ‘us’ and ‘them’ between service users and service providers.
