Feedback from Parents

‘My son absolutely loves coming to PIP, he is always happy after attending and he is always talking about PIP Activity Club’
‘I’d like to thank PIP for having both my son and daughter today and taking them to the Space Centre and McDonalds.  They have obviously had a brilliant time as they are both shattered, and I had a break which was much needed.  The holidays are the most stressful time for us as a family and breaks from caring for these two, much as I love them, are essential.  Being able to leave these two with your staff who I am confident I can trust with their care gives me the opportunity to recharge my worn out batteries and the ability to make it through the holidays.  I don’t think you get enough recognition or appreciation for the essential role you provide for families like mine and the fact that while others are at home relaxing you are working so hard which is why I am posting this here.’
