New Cross & Deptford Families First
"I found Families First Support very helpful. I needed help with setting boundaries for my two eldest children who have autism. Families First Support helped me to get in contact with SIGNAL (an organization that supports families with autistic children) and I am going to attend a course in September. The girls weren't doing any activities but are now doing cubs and scouts. I felt tired and run down and frustrated but Families First Support has helped a great deal which has taken away lot of stress and strain"

" I was seeking help but I never imagined I would get these amazing results. I imagined that I would be ridiculed and rejected but you and your officer have been wonderful and the referrals you have made have turned out great for all the help you have given us. I cannot believe we are on the point of actually living a normal life everyone else. It has been a journey I will never forget".

"St James has been lifeline for me and my daughter. I didn't know any other parents in this area. I felt very isolated when she was younger but it has really helped coming to St James regularly and talking to other mums. The staff organise the best early years activities I have been to. Its a great place to learn"

"NCD Families First provides an excellent start for our youngest children. There are 106 Church of England schools in the Diocese of Southwark from Woolwich in the East to Richmond in the West and from Lambeth to Reigate in the South. These schools are at the very heart of our Christian mission. They give our children a first class education but so much more: our education is built on a strong moral foundation. The instinct to recognise the difference between right and wrong will stay with them throughout their life. What is more all our practical experience confirms that the work of NCD Families First Ltd will prepare children to get off to an excellent start in their primary school."

"NCD Families First is based in my part of the Diocese and I have watched how they have developed their services for local families who rate them as the best in the borough. The new service for two year olds is designed to do something special. Our children come from a wide range of circumstances. The service aims to give all of them what they need to get the best from their future schools and from the rest of their lives".
