Sarah Hall

 

Sarah is a parent enjoying her second stint as a trustee. She has a daughter (A) who attends AWF she has been in our services since she was a young girl. She is now part of our transition programme and enjoys our leisure activities as well as our respite breaks. Sarah is very knowledgeable of carer’s needs and of our various services and is happy to speak to other parents and offer help and advice.

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.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and everyone else that supported H on the recent trip – she had an amazing time. I enjoyed look at the Twitter feed to see what you had been up to.

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!

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

We cannot tell you what AWF means to us as a family – a lifeline, a light in the dark. Something that has offered our daughter equality, to have a social life and really support us as a family.

To all the staff at About with Friday, I had a wonderful time with you guys, and I want to say a big thank you for looking after me. Love from K.

I just cannot thank you enough for taking K my daughter so that she could have fun with her friends on holiday in Milton Keynes, […] it made her extremely happy.

Selfishly for me it gave my wife a much sought after period of respite exhausted after 16 years of constant care. Complete respite is dependent upon the knowledge that your child is in safe professional caring hands. The ‘about with friends’ staff impress me because they display such enthusiastic vocational attitudes towards their care.

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!

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 !!!!
