Personal Stories
My son has Autism and a severe speech and language delay.

Another nursey was unable to meet my son's needs but Cobtree agreed to take him despite his difficulties
and have been (and continue to be) amazing in providing and sourcing him the support he requires.

Personal Stories
Mainstream setting was unable to deal with our son's challenges and barriers. Cobtree has been our saviour!
He has flourished with their expertise, compassion, understanding, patience & love.

They have given us support as a family unit,
and the fact we can leave him in their care with no worries is wonderful.

All the staff and volunteers really make such a lovely place for our children to start socialising
and making friends to start their school years with a great confidence and baseline.

We are forever grateful to all that Cobtree has done. We will be sad for Tommy to leave. Thank you.

Personal Stories
Erin started Maidstone Mencap at a really difficult time for us as a family.
Erin has a rare genetic disorder, complex epilepsy, global development delay and intellectual disability.

Erin’s transformation in the last year is clear to see and greatly due to the support from staff
and their amazing volunteers. Erin runs into Maidstone Mencap and is clearly very happy there.
1 year later and we are all in a better place thanks to Maidstone Mencap.
