Hi my name is Tyra  – I like going to drama club and going to Crazy Golf and meeting new friends. I like hanging out with all the people.  I also like doing the zooms with quizzes and bingo and other games.
It is fun to be able to talk to others and Jane and her helpers are good and kind and support us all.
I like that we go out to coffee shops or pubs and other outings with all of them and it is nice to have new friends to talk to and do things with, together. Jane is a loving caring person who helps us all to understand things and feel better about ourselves. She supports us and encourages

Lisa, Tyra’s Mum – My daughter joined Positive Path Foundation shortly after lockdown during the COVID pandemic.  It was a wonderful decision.  During lockdown the regular Zoom meetups and fun interactions – the group played Bingo and charades along with other games and they practised their up-coming pantomime during the regular zooms.  My daughter looked forward to them every time!  Meeting up in person was even better as she felt part of a group.  Jane is incredible at bringing out the best in each of them and she has encouraged them to be supportive of one another and really ensured they have fun at all the interesting activities organised for the group. Her ability to reach each individual and inspire them is unique and I am so grateful that she can see each person’s needs and responds to them accordingly.
Grateful parent with a happy daughter!

Hi my name is Daniella  – I have Down Syndrome . When I first  joined Positive Path Foundation we had a lot of events on zoom during lockdown. We did bingo and quizzes.  I wanted to make friends so I wanted to join this group. My friend Joseph recommend me to this group.

Ross – I have really enjoyed the Positive Path Foundation Zoom meetings during lockdown. We have played bingo, charades, quizzes and “who am I” and dance sessions as well as a drama workshop. We are rehearsing for a pantomime, Aladdin. I have made lots of new friends. We have a lot of events planned for when the Lockdown eases.
My mum has also enjoyed joining in the zoom meetings and she has met some new parents and carers. She says it has been a lifesaver, during lockdown.

Wendy, Ross’s Mum – My son and myself have enjoyed meeting new people/ families

Hi I’m Josh Ward –  I’ve been a member of Positive Path Foundation since it’s inception in January of 2020. I’ve really enjoyed the events and getting to meet all the members. Everyone has been lovely and warm and welcoming. I had always dreamt of something like this happening in my area but never thought it actually would and so when I first heard about it in my local newspaper I instantly signed up and haven’t looked back since. I would implore you to consider joining because it’s great fun with all the different numerous events and you get to make new friend’s and gradually build up your confidence.

Anna, Josh’s Mum – Positive Path Foundation has helped my son build new friendships and socialise within a safe environment. His confidence has grown as a result. Events are varied and fun. The groups are inclusive and supportive.

My name is Katie Yates – I love being a member of Positive Path Foundation as it helped me to meet new friends as it is hard at my age to meet people. Jane and Jo are fab people and have made it feel really relaxed.

Pauline, Katie’s Mum – I first saw an article about Positive Path Foundation in the Evening Echo when my daughter really needed some companionship and fun things to do. Positive Path Foundation have definitely given that in abundance.

Joanna – I like to be part of Positive Path because I like meeting new people, making new friends and going out.

Jane, Joanna’s Mum  – Joanna has thoroughly enjoyed all the zoom meetings and events and it’s been wonderful for her to meet new people, especially with everything going on at the moment. She doesn’t feel as isolated as she could have been. It’s been brilliant for her mental health. Thank you to all involved.

Joe – What I enjoyed about being a member is that we are all equal with our disabilities. We are all being positive and you meet all the members and staff who run the charity.

Debbie, Joe’s Mum – Joe has really benefited from joining this group earlier in the year. I have seen his confidence grow before my eyes and it is so lovely to see him chat and laugh with his new friends. It has given him a whole new lease of life and helped him spend more independent time away from his family.

Emma – Positive Path Foundation is a fantastic charity. Since I have been a member it has made me feel that I am finally part of something, as we are all treated and respected in the same way. I’m meeting new people and making friends. Since lockdown we have been doing some exciting activities on Zoom which has helped me stay connected.
That’s why I like Positive Path Foundation.

Daniel, Emma’s Dad – Incredible opportunity for our daughter to engage in fun, safe, challenging and rewarding activities with like minded people.
