“My son has realised he can make friends he’s come home and he excitedly said “people like me!” He’s realised that being bullied at school doesn’t have to impact on his whole life. Splash has also helped him improve in team work and social interaction skills. He has also realised most importantly he is not alone in his struggles”A parent
“I loved it, it was awesome! And I made a new friend today”A Young Person
