“They put the children first. They keep the children safe and happy, and keep them moving forwards. You can’t ask for better than that.  The staff are lovely. They are absolutely marvellous and so dedicated with the kids.  I’m kept in the loop constantly. I never feel she’s not my child or that somebody’s taken her away from me. She is still my child: very much so.”  (Jordan’s Mum)
