“I can honestly say I walked out of Vauxhall City Farm a far more confident, self-aware, happier, purposeful and motivated person than I walked in. I enjoyed each day I was there, which is testament to everyone involved, and I now have a job, so thank you!” — Chris, New Shoots participant

“I have been working with him for 18 months and it has been a revelation watching how he responded to working with animals, being given the responsibility to feed, water and care for them. It has stabilised him and allowed him to begin to imagine going to college. Unthinkable when we first met. I am delighted to hear from him that he has signed up to Maths, English and Life-skills courses (as well as gym and football) for his remaining weeks at Thameside.” — Referral partner
