What Our Parents & Volunteers Say

When my health visitor recommended [The Parent Rooms] I never thought it would help me. wrong I was! You are amazing at helping me feel less anxious and for helping me to realise that what I feel is normal. I don't feel so lonely any more. Especially my peer supporter Rachel, you have been amazing at helping me.

F. Parent/Service User

It means so much to feel supported and cared about. The work you are doing is so appreciated and meaningful to myself and lots of others.

S. Parent/Service User

I just wanted to say thanks for everything you've done to help me so far. I've been just blown away by all the support, and honestly I don't know what I would have done without finding you. I'm so grateful.

K. Parent/Service User

It has made a huge difference to me, having the option to take part in something like this. It is so valuable to have these services available in such an isolated time.

I. Parent/Art Therapy Participant

I can't speak for everyone else but the opportunity to be a peer supporter has helped me in my own recovery by giving me a purpose and an identity other than "mum". This opportunity wouldn't exist if you hadn't created it.

Andrea Parent/Peer Support Volunteer

The peer support training gave me the tools to recognise when I was slipping again and helped me pull myself back out of it nearly as quickly as I went down. I'm definitely not the same women I was a year ago. I'm even better now and you had a major role to play in that.

Carly Parent/Peer Support Volunteer

I am a whole different person than I would have been had I not done the peer support course. Thank you so much for EVERYTHING!
