New Beginnings for parents and carers

04 Jul 18 New Beginnings for parents and carers

Our first group of parents/carers have completed our New Beginnings, peer support group. Read what they have to say about it.

‘The advice and support given by the Phoenix team has been fantastic. Groups are always full of great tips and ideas to help with every situation. Always made to feel welcome and at ease attending the groups. 100% effort is always seen from the Phoenix team.’

‘I was referred to the phoenix Project at a very low point. The Phoenix Project has provided me with a wealth of information to help me and my family. The ladies are simply amazing. They listen without judgement and give invaluable advice. I really couldn’t have got through my experience without the help and understanding of the Phoenix Project team and have made some life-long friends in the other parents along the way! Thank you wholeheartedly for giving me the skills and understanding my family and I needed! I will be forever grateful for the chance to participate in this course’.

‘I was quite anxious about starting the group but the drop in session was great at putting me at ease. The group has taught me a huge amount and the support has been amazing. The support and understanding from the other parents in the group has been invaluable’.
