Twelve Days of Christmas - a story for the ninth day...

< Back to listing

Over December, we need your support to raise £12,000 to help young people facing challenges at school, at home or in the community. Together we can give them a fresh start in 2015 - learning new skills, growing in confidence and fulfilling their potential.  Here is a story about how Romsey Mill provides hope, transformation and second chances for young people: 

Simon* was a withdrawn and unhappy teenager – he didn’t enjoy school and didn’t have any friends.  After a home visit from Ruth Watt, the Aspire Programme Coordinator, he felt able to attend an Aspire group and mix with other young people.  Through sharing his experiences and talking to others with autistic spectrum conditions, he is much more accepting of his diagnosis, and feels more positive about what he can achieve.  He is more relaxed at home, and less anxious about school, and knows that he has a place where he can be himself around people who understand and like him.
