I am so grateful for all you and everyone at the youth cafe has done for him and myself. The school is very close to my heart, without you all I couldn't of achieved any of this for him.

- Parent of Yr 8 Student at Tavistock - February 2018

We have really enjoyed coming to your school over the last four weeks. CSE can be such a difficult subject but your young people  showed such maturity and we felt we learned a lot from them.  Can you thank them from us for being able to share experiences and just for being fun.

 Just to mention as well the welcome from everyone we met in the school from reception to the adults in the room. The compassion and respect for the young people just shines through and the input from you all helped to make it a really positive experience.
