Client testimonial

“I am writing to thank you for the excellent report about the homework club ChART helped fund at GP Youth Club. We enjoyed hearing about the work of the programme from Adrian at our meeting but it was also really helpful to have such a detailed and well considered written report. Your programme was clearly carefully planned, resourced and staffed which ensured a great outcome for young people and their parents/carers. I thought your evaluations were thoughtfully done too, showing that you looked carefully at different aspects of the programme, both qualitative and quantitative. Your activities seemed really inventive and engaging. I am thrilled that ChART has been able to fund this pilot and help Sporting Way continue for a bit longer. The programme is providing an extremely valuable service to the young people in our local area. I hope ChART can continue to support your work in a small way and that you will be successful in getting more funding to continue and build on your current valuable work.”
