Twelve Days of Christmas - a story for the second 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: 

Mandy* is a 15 year old with Asperger Syndrome – she is very shy and has bad days at school.  Even so, she will never miss her Aspire girls’ group, as she knows this is a time she can be herself and take part in activities with girls who are like her.  Mandy’s mum attends a Monday afternoon group for parents of children with autism, and Ruth Watt, the Aspire Programme Coordinator, has helped her secure funding for her daughter’s education.  As Mandy’s mum says “I can't express how truly important and how truly grateful we are that Aspire exists.  Without it we would still be stuck in limbo.”
