"We just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has looked after C throughout the summer holidays and taken him to places we couldn’t have done. He has loved every single day he has been out and has looked forward to the next. Thank you for being so patient with him – we know that it can be challenging and awkward. This break from 24 hour care C needs has enabled us time to spend with his older sister".

'As my car has broken down I am unable to cover this contact and as the the contact centre aren’t able to cover it, i'm very glad that SWIS are. Thank you!

"I would like to say explicitly that without the ongoing support of South West Intervention Services, I am sure that G would not have achieved as much as she has, and certainly would not now be ready to step back into education. Like you, I am really proud of her, and pleased with how far she has come, and I know from discussions with her that she is truly thankful for all of the support you have given her, over these past months. I have been thoroughly impressed by your constant commitment to G, and meeting her outcomes, and you and your staff have truly delivered. What a service you are!!!!! As a service you do shine brightly.
I can never thank you enough for what you have done for G".

"Without my SWIS workers I wouldn't be where I am now, you have been amazing and have helped me so so much - thank you SWIS"

There is a lot to organise – including coordinating a date – train tickets and accommodation in Exeter.
SWIS have been the easy part – as you have been so easy to work with. The service has been excellent

"We had an emergency and you guys helped out by sending someone to support within an hour, your staff were professional and made me me and my children feel cared for and not judged, we have had lots of other agencies try to help us but couldn't, thank you so much team SWIS"
"F received SWIS support – taking her out during school hours during term time providing activities and one to one support to try to increase F’s self-esteem and confidence. I believe that these sessions have had a very positive effect on F and I would have no hesitation in recommending SWIS to other parents/children’s services.
SWIS is very flexible with pick up times and places when required and adapt the nature of the support very well according to the needs of F and/or myself. The support workers are very warm and positive towards her and are very understanding if F becomes difficult which she can be from time to time".
