“During our 8yrs with Firstchance we have watched our daughter grow into a confident, independent little girl. The services we have received have not only been beneficial to her but also to us as parents. She has come a long way and we all (mum, dad and big brother) have learnt so much during our time with Firstchance. I truly believe she would not be where she is now if she had not received the ongoing/Amazing support of staff at Firstchance.”
