"The support and encouragement through ParentsNext helped me to take a chance and apply, even though I firmly believed I would not be successful"
"The support from the ParentsNext program has been amazing, it has helped so much with increasing confidence and reducing anxiety levels and without the support of the ParentsNext program I am not sure if I would have been able to do this myself"
