What our service users say
Can I say how impressed I am at the speed you have responded and also at the amount of work and care you put in with all of our children. It is much genuinely much appreciated and, clearly, much needed – we are all amazed at how quickly you have turned this around.. You really do change lives.
“In the past i’ve had counselling on various occasions and at the end of it, I came out feeling drained and feeling down. When I got offered Dreadnoughts sessions I thought it might be the same but it was the complete opposite!! I came out of the sessions feeling better about myself, more relaxed and happier because i’ve off loaded all my stress and spoken about it and been given great advice on what to do”.
I first went to the Dreadnought Centre when I was about 14. At the time it was simply a case of just going, having fun, chatting to people and learning to build relationships (I also have Aspergers.) Now I realize that behind the scenes was the basic building blocks of learning to deal with people, society and life in general. At this current time I am now 23 years old have finished my bachelor’s degree and am now in full time employment. I am sure that with out the Dreadnought project I would have been to isolated to deal with the problems that were affecting my whole family at the time. I owe the staff, the volunteers and the young people around me a debt of thanks for with out there input i would have been lost with out them.
