How we help The difference we make For our families In one of our recent parent surveys you told us: 96% of you agree that Cherry Trees is meeting the needs of their child 85% state their child has progressed since joining us and three quarters of you stated it had helped the whole family. Given our position as a charity in the care sector we are in contact with other professionals. Of those surveyed their fantastic feedback should give current, new and prospective families even greater re-assurance about the level of care given here. 100% of professionals agreed they would recommend Cherry Trees for future placements, the level of care given and how safe the children are here. What our families are telling us.... " My son loves going to Cherry Trees, it means he can have a great time being away and for me as his carer knowing he is at a place where I feel he has a great time in a safe place. I can then spend some time with my other children being able to do every day activities that can't always be done when my son is at home." " It gives my child some independence and an opportunity to mix with her peers. It gives myself an opportunity to spend quality time with my other children and grand children as well as a chance to spend time with my other half. " " We get valuable time to not have to make sure everything is constantly how our child wants it and not to fear his aggression." "If Katie was asked to pick her favourite thing in the whole wide world, she would without doubt say Cherry Trees" "My child has really grown in confidence since starting at Cherry Trees. I feel like the staff know him so well, it is like a second home" “It allows O to access toys and mix with peers that he cannot do at home. It allows us to recharge our batteries and focus more on his siblings” "It offers a safe, friendly, caring environment for my child" "Without the support of Cherry Trees we would not have managed to keep our son living at home."
