"Too many children are growing up with low aspirations and limited opportunities which hold them back. School-Home Support’s model and approach make a huge difference to the town inclusion strategy in Blackpool. They are trusted by families who know they have their best interests at heart."
Paul Maynard MP for Blackpool North
"School-Home Support has a laser focus on improving the lives of families in a practical way, its committed staff strengthening the links between home and school. Too many families who need this support aren’t getting it. We need to act quickly, to prevent children being lost from education for good."
Rt Hon Sir Stephen Timms MP for East Ham

“She (our School-Home Support practitioner) was great at listening to what I needed to say, her feedback was brilliant. She was supportive without sugar coating things.”
“Claire is so funny, I love it when she comes into school for our time. She always makes you feel happy even when you’re in a bad mood and always listens to you. You can talk to her even when you’ve done something wrong and she’ll help you make it right again.”
