The support has meant essential contributions towards our three life-changing education and support programmes and allows us to continue doing our best to support children, young people and families. “My favourite thing about MATES was being able to interact with university students and ask questions about Uni. I have learnt that it’s important having a good plan (for studying, organising etc). The thing I will remember most about MATES is the interactions I was able to make with the mentors”– a MATES Year 13 Mentee . “HIPPY is such a valuable programme. There is no alternative for low socio-economic areas and low-income families—for those families eager for their children to be more” – Krystal, a HIPPY parent . “It is not always easy to work with our community. Building trust with them is so crucial. I am pleased to see trust developing among our students, school community, and our school social worker” – Charlotte, Principal of Redhill Primary School . “Last week, I was very ill and needed to stay in the hospital for four days. My wife was so surprised the food parcel was delivered to us. She said she is very thankful, as am I” – a HIPPY dad.
