"I don't feel like I ever want to stop coming here. This is a little escape that I really enjoy. I'm stronger and able to talk to people. I like meeting you and the other staff in the groups and other mums. I can't believe that now I am talking to them and they are talking to me. I prefer Circle of Security and the cooking, I am using so much more veggies and love cooking different things now."
"Brighter Futures has helped me become a better person and believe in myself."
"I am absolutely buzzing after today's class! It's amazing"
"When I started Brighter Futures I was nervous as I am a paranoid person, I don't have a lot of confidence when meeting new people.
Since I have been at Brighter Futures I have gained confidence and it has helped my son to blossom his character and speech, it helped get him ready for nursery.
I have also managed to get on the fitness instructor course at Highlands which I really wanted to get on but struggled with money and I didn't know where to get help with funding where as my key worker helped me find the funding. So now I am one step closer to getting my dream job. (I am so happy). Thank you Brighter Futures."
"Brighter Futures has pulled my family back together. We were disjointed for a long time and I almost felt isolated because of it."
"I've got my mojo back and Brighter Futures, along with Laura, have certainly been part responsible for this, thank you all."
"All the courses and techniques to deal with home situations have been useful, and the relaxation and knowing different ways to manage things with the children."
"Generally my son's behaviour is better. I'm trying to be more consistent with discipline, sticking with what I say. It feels like a church coming here where I get to have time out, like a sanctuary, a place to go. I feel like I've improved. Now that he can interact more I have more patience and I can communicate better. I want to do more with him now he's older. I love teaching him new things."
"I feel like a completely different person, I am much more confident and can now say no when I'm busy. I still struggle with the children occasionally which is normal. I don't know what I would have done without this place, my life would have been completely different, you have all been wonderful."
"If it wasn't for going to Brighter Futures to learn new things I wouldn't know how to be the mum I am now. I've changed in such a big way since coming here, I'm more confident and made loads of new friends. They understand you and are there to help and support you in the best way they can. My son has changed also, his behaviour and speech is getting on really well. He also gets along really well with staff and has made loads of friends too. I thank all of Brighter Futures for helping me. I wouldn't be who I am now if it wasn't for their support."
