What local families say about us -

‘’I didn’t know Acorns existed and what it was; I found out through a referral for help for my son.  The staff are friendly, polite and helpful and make you feel welcome. I attended a course run by Jenny and Debbie and I cannot be more thankful for those two ladies, the amount that they do to help you, no judgement from them. Acorns is a safe haven and is a warm and welcoming place.’’

"Can I just say thank you so much, one week of your input has changed things so much and I am so grateful for that, I have hit so many brick walls the last year and lost faith in all the systems, you have changed that for me. Thank you!"
