Testimonials
Don’t take our word for it, here’s what some of the parents who visit us said

“…Our House is a very warm, welcoming, relaxing environment where all of our family feel happy. The Saturday Club is a time we look forward to each month, as we know all of our children will be entertained and happy and we can share with other families facing similar challenges. There is nothing else like Our House locally. If it didn’t exist, I wouldn’t have the network of support that I do today…”

– HARRY’S MUM

“… We’re so lucky to have a facility like this available to us in the local area. Knowing that we can just come along and not have to worry about whether changing facilities will be suitable and relax knowing most of those around us are in the same boat is a huge comfort and invaluable….”
