Below are just a few quotes from Parents, Young People and Volunteers relating to their Splash experiences:

 

"Splash is a Godsend. Splash offers me, as a single parent, reprieve. Those few hours of activities offer me a chance to regenerate. Dealing with the overwhelming responsibility of a child is hard work. I am maintaining work and study, as well as a healthy and happy child. Splash performs an important function at a time when people are struggling. What Splash will do is help prevent my son, the next generation, from becoming a disaffected youth. This cannot be applauded enough.” A Mother

 

"I had a brilliant time and I think all the kids did too."  A Volunteer

 

"Thank you so much for your patience, time and dedication with J over the last few weeks.  She has had so  much fun and learnt loads.  You are all absolutely fantastic."  A Parent

 

"I feel that Splash has greatly improved his self esteem. At primary school he was often labelled as the naughty boy by both the staff and parents due to his ADHD and aspergers."  A Parent

 

"The fire station was fun. I made some new friends and felt more confident. I was worried when I first got there but didn't take long to feel not worried."  A Young Person

 

“R had a fabulous time.  I think these activities really help him gain independence and self-confidence."  A Parent

 

“By allowing the children to attend Splash it has enabled me to see their capabilities and realise that I should give them more independence.  This is hard because of what we have been through as a family – but I’m getting there.  Today I have let them go for a dog walk without me – this is a massive step for me and them”.  A Parent

 

 “I’m not much of a smiler but I enjoyed this”  A Young Person

 

"Best thing I’ve done all Summer” A Young Person
