Sally-Anne and Ruben

Sally-Anne and Ruben

Sally-Anne is mum to Ruben, five, who used to attend our Ofsted Regulated Special Needs Nursery. He now attends our Saturday Cottage Kids Club and Holiday Clubs.

Sally-Anne first took Ruben to the doctors in December 2016, but it wasn’t until 2017 that a diagnosis was made. He has a complex condition which affects his development. Sally-Anne said: “Receiving this news about Ruben was horrendous and completely debilitating. I knew I needed to get help.” Fortunately, Sally-Anne was told about Grove Cottage by a friend who thought we might be able to help. Sally-Anne says: “Ruben is stimulated and enjoys the social side of attending Grove Cottage. He is always beaming from ear to ear when I pick him up and I see small differences in him every day.

Grove Cottage gave Sally-Anne a lifeline at a time when she needed it most. Whilst Ruben attends Grove Cottage she is able to concentrate on her own work, studies and charity projects which would not have been possible otherwise.
