Saturday Club Feedback

I would like to thank you all so much for all the support that you have given our family over the last 6 years. You have given S the opportunity to try new things, to grow and play in an environment where he hasn't been judged. You have supported his brothers and me through some very tricky times. You have been a life saver in the holidays - 3 head strong boys with their own wants and needs is a hard one to juggle. It has been a great opportunity to meet other parents and know that your’e not on your own. I look at S now and it is hard to remember the little boy when he first came who hardly said a word, couldn't settle at anything for long and frequently had tantrums. Now he is so confident, a bright spark and a bossy boots and never shuts up. I apologize for him taking over the raffle draw at Christmas - over excitement, but it is only at the Toy Library that everyone would just accept it and laugh and let them do it. That is how special the place is.

S is sad that he is 'moving on', but is really keen to come and say goodbye and thank you to everyone.



Under 5's Sessions

P is very shy and is really coming out of her shell. Made some nice friends.


The family worker is always there to help and listen.


Nice to meet other parents and understand what they are going through and I'm not the only one.


Good for M to interact with other children and adults


Thank you so much for all of your help and support since D joinedin December. He really loves it and it is such a support to us.




Holiday Activities

We all really enjoyed the Teddy Bears Picnic with all of our friends and the egg hunt was lots of fun. Thank you


Wallington was absolutely marvellous - my son who has profound autism enjoyed the whole day - especially the fun park, using the swings, slides, and climbing frames - enjoyed snack there. Family had a lovely day.


If we hadn't been booked on this trip we wouldn't have left the house on such a dismal day. As it was we had a brilliant time despite the weather. 


We rarely get swimming because it's so stressful to manage the 2 kids safely on my own. Knowing that all the NTLL workers were there helping watch over the kids meant instead of being stressful it was a good experience for us all.


Couldn't have got through the holidays without Toy Library trips!!


I like that the activities were adapted to meet my boys needs and kept us busy over the holidays.


We did 1 or 2 activities a week- great for children to know in advance of things to look forward to. All activities were well organised and fun for everyone. Thank you all very much. Enjoyed seeing familiar faces
