Most Significant Change

19th March 2024

The children said that they had done things they’d never done before, that they were ’amazed’ by what they had achieved, and that this made them feel more confident.

The children agreed that the residents had made them feel very welcome, and that had helped a lot to overcome their initial anxieties and build confidence; now they
