"Sure start Bingham provided so much support and help"

About: Bingham Children's Centre

(as a parent/guardian),

my child got took in foster care for something which was not my fault for several months. I'm a single young mum and my heart was shattered into a million pieces! , I didn't know what to do & I thought I'd lost my child forever I was absolutely broken&lost my world came crashing down, I felt lost, lonely, emotional and completely devastated! I was a complete mess. I decided to go into the local children's centre (sure start) in Bingham for some advice and help, I started to work with a lady called Claire she helped me so much during the whole case! . She helped me learn how to be more confident around people, she listened to me and was always there whenever I needed her&still is! She gave me advice and help on what I could do with my child on visits like activities and things, she also helped me by preparing me for when my child came home like what I needed, budgeting, play, routine ect & how to help settle my child back into my home when they came home. My child is now home with me and I now have another child, Claire has helped me so much& I know feel like a stronger and more confident person! . To this very day she still helps me. I'm so thankful to sure start and Claire for everything they have done for me&my two children. I'm in the process of moving into my own first place with my children and Claire has helped me so much with that too! . They've provided so much support&help and advise. I would really recommend people to go to sure start if they needed advice or anything. There brilliant! And they are there to help everyone. : )
