"Great friendships, performance and outcomes. My son loves going to perform with friends and they accept . him for who he is. He attends mainstream school where he can be an outsider. At PtD he feels he belongs”

"Ryan always comes homes with new ideas and plans for upcoming projects and is constantly rehearsing newly learned gigs and short renditions. He is always so excited! This kind of encouragement and support is just what our Ryan needs as part of his social development and his commitment to the community. It has to be said that Ryan's confidence has improved tremendously and he is a pleasure to watch performing. Thank you for giving our son great opportunities to show the world who he is and what he can do. Well done and please keep it up!"

"Rachel loves it, not only does she get to do drama, art, singing and dancing all things she loves, she also gets to meet up with young adults around her own age. The teens and young adults at the club are made to feel like their ideas matter they help make decisions about what's happening at the club so it feels like their club which is just great.  The leaders are just like friends who not only help them put on shows but are there to share good news with or confide in if they feel low. It is more than a drama group it is a social occasion and I am very grateful to have found it"

"Well as a mother with a daughter with autism, I found that every group (and there were many) she tried, she did not fit in, didn't mix, didn't socialise, just stayed in her own world and in all honesty I had basically given up. Since going to PtD, my daughter’s confidence has grown to the point that she now interacts with new people, the other members and she has made friends. It has changed her whole self-esteem, self-worth and this has truly empowered her. She always comes home full of giggles and on a high as they have all had so much fun. It's remarkable and I can't thank all at PTD enough for all their incredible support and in all the good work they do. They have given my daughter the ability to enjoy being a teenager and the ability to grow and develop in her future."

“Lost & Found” was an amazing project. The young people involved were encouraged to share their own experiences and developed a piece of drama that showed a depth of understanding and empathy that brought a fresh focus to dementia. It made all who saw the piece think in new ways about the way the loss of a loved one affects family, friends and the wider community. They were superb!”
