"Lizz has been an enormous asset in the development of Artz+ Sportz+ - a programme of holiday activities for children with additional needs which has been going since 2005. She came on board as a member of the support team and was unfailingly professional, kind and sensitive to the needs of both the children and the parents. She went on to become a highly organised, efficient, flexible and reliable team leader. She has also been instrumental in helping recruit new staff and also in putting together a training package for them. Lizz's OT knowledge was also invaluable to us in developing a new project in 2011 - Artz Sensory - for children with PMLD. She gave guidance and practical support during the research phase and did storytelling using the sensory room on the day - hitting the right note with each child. All in all her supportive presence along with her in-depth understanding of the children meant we were able to run very positive and successful sessions.” – West Dorset District Council

The laughter we now see regularly in our client is infectious and a joy to see!
