About Me

I'm just your ordinary parent who has worked hard for something I believe in. As you may have read, nearly 10 years ago, School Refusal came knocking at our door and I didn't have a clue what I was dealing with and resources were minimal. I vowed that no parent should have to go through that with no where to turn. Hence how this charity came about.

I'm a 'Cricket Mum'. My son began playing when he was 7 Years old and is now nearly 19yrs. He makes me proud. Cricket has given him a focus all throughout the rough and tough times and has helped us all really. I'm the Treasurer for his club, so a very busy person; but I love it.
