Let me tell you a little bit about us and what we do

Kind words from some of our families

FROM PETER

(Parent of a 14 year old Saturday Club attendee in London)

The staff are amazing and kind and know M so well and how to motivate him and keep him calm. The facility is great with outside play and big area for M to play or just chill. He is always so happy to go and when picked up.i would like to thank everyone involved with RFA for the amazing service you give and the love and care you give to our children and support we as carers really need ..
FROM JO

(Parent of a 14 year old member of a West Midlands Saturday Group)

He absolutely loves going and seems to try all the activities. He is learning turn taking and how he communicates that is very positive ( rather than in a negative way). The team are really fabulous and give time on pick up to chat and share how he’s been. It gives B time to engage with his peers in a supportive environment and gives me time to spend solely with my daughter. It’s a great place for B to be without his parents, becoming himself but somewhere he is safe and understood. The range of activities is amazing.
FROM SANDRA

(Mum of an attendee at our young adult women's group).

she gained much, not least a small ongoing group of very good and supportive friends, that makes navigating the world just a little bit easier. And vital, quite literally, in terms of avoiding loneliness and isolation...
As her mum, this is also hugely significant for me too!
