"The Ashdown Centre is like a lifeboat, expertly steered by two special ladies - Charlotte and Natalie - who have taken the individual needs of our children and carefully developed structured sessions that meet each boys' specific needs, gives them more confidence and has created unforgettable memories.

"The team members of Ashdown are equally committed. They engage with the children right from the very beginning of each session, each one of them bringing their individual skills, from performing magic tricks to pizza making.

"By attending the Ashdown Centre our boys have been able to enjoy so many different activities at weekends and during school holidays. To name just a few, these have included trips out to, visits to the centre from therapy animals that have really helped build confidence, Easter egg hunts, and Christmas parties.

"Being aboard the Ashdown lifeboat has brought much needed stability, support, care and strength.

Thank you for being there."

Mark Scott, father of Ben and Josh who use the Ashdown Siblings Club
