Hedgehog Boxes!

The woodwork team in our Production department was recently asked to design and build ten hedgehog boxes for one of our cafe customers. Many of our members contributed to the process, from the initial design, to dismantling pallets to recover wood, and then building and decorating the boxes. The customer was delighted with the results and had let us know that her newly installed hedgehog homes are already being used! If you are interesting in purchasing one of these unique items for yourself or as a gift, please contact Workskills.

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 !!!!

AWF offers and amazing, caring, supportive group to both special needs adults/children & their families. Since N joined you he has been to some fantastic places, met some amazing friends and done activities we would never have thought he’d do. You have helped our family life improve by making N a happier, more content, confident boy.

Having spent many years in school with little improvements in I’s behaviour and speech, in just a few weeks with you the improvements in both areas are plain to see. Please continue as you are, as life at the moment for us as a family is greatly improved because of your input.

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.

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.
