“Growing up with two working parents my brother and I were very fortunate to have our grandparents around to help out with childcare. However, as a community we no longer necessarily live where our families live and Centrepoint gives children a safe and engaging environment in which to learn and grow. They not only provide childcare but engage the children in new activities and support both them and their families during some of the most difficult and challenging situations”.
“As a mother of 4 children I am acutely aware of the challenges our children face and how vulnerable they are. They are the corner stone of our future and we have a duty of care to protect, encourage and educate them in a manner that allows them to feel confident as individuals and with the necessary tools to support them in their future lives”.
“I am incredibly proud to be the Patron of Centrepoint and to support the work of such a caring and hard-working team of staff who work tirelessly to enhance children’s lives”.
