Sam Harwood

PA to our CEO

Sam joined About with Friends in 2016 after spending 11 years working as a school administrator and working with young children. Although her title is PA to our CEO she does much more than that from helping in our catering department on events to manning our charity shop. If help is needed Sam will always be the first to raise her hand.

 

I haven’t seen D for ages and he looks like a new man . The stress has gone from his face – he looks great Well done !!!!

I’ve got my life back

This is the best transition I have had for a student in the whole five years I have taught 6th formers!

After 30 years of trying to get P engaged in activities, he is now, under your care, beginning to grow like a great Oak tree.

Over the last five years I have had a fortnightly, 2 hour designated gardening slot. I highly value your service and ethos.

It was a massive decision for his family to make and by choosing AWF it means they trust totally in the service. I am of the opinion that AWF is the only provision in the county for D and he is very happy to attend.

I always have a smile on my face after a day with the members of the team. They are all individuals and each, in their own way, bring joy to my life. They are all much appreciated and I enjoy the gardening of course!

A big thank you to yourself and the About with Friends staff for another great trip! J had a fantastic time, going on the Harry Potter Studio Tour, which he had wanted to do for ages and ages.

Thank you for taking K to Milton Keynes on holiday, it made her extremely happy. Selfishly, it gave my wife a much sought after period of respite after 16 years of constant care.

About with Friends and you particularly, have done some great work with excellent outcomes for D. I was particularly pleased to hear that you are working on integration with the Youth Group as I felt he would miss out on peer interaction if he didn’t come to college.
