As Told By His Mum

Ben’s Story

I can’t believe that it’s nearly a year since I first met with Paula and her team at North Hub, part of Day Services at New Directions, to talk about Ben.

Ben had been through quite an ordeal at his last centre and I really didn’t think that I would ever be able to trust anyone with my precious boy ever again.

Then Ben was lucky enough to get a placement with the North Hub and you and your amazing team changed all that.

Ben has been welcomed with open arms into a world that understands him, that embraces his cheekiness, celebrates his uniqueness and engages with him fully.

The timetable of well-thought-out activities put together for Ben enables him to have so much fun whilst still keeping his mind and body active – rebound therapy, swimming, sensory play, and intensive interaction to name but a few.

The team are always happy, encouraging and enthusiastic and seems to enjoy these activities with Ben as much as he does.

What you have achieved with Ben in the short space of time he has been with you is nothing short of phenomenal! His confidence has rocketed, as has his independence and his communication skills are improving day by day.

The Hub itself is fabulous, light, bright, and spacious with wonderful artwork adorning the walls it really feels like a welcoming warm safe space, not to mention the delicious smells from the kitchen that makes your mouth water.

When I see the wonderful setting you have I can see that it is all thanks to a dedicated, professional and knowledgeable team who are always approachable and happy to help with anything we may need. I know that when I walk away and leave Ben with you that he is safe hands and living his best life.

If I had to sit and draw up a blueprint for the perfect day centre provision it would be the North Hub!

So huge thanks for everything that you have done and everything that you provide for Ben, you really have an amazing service and you should be so very proud of what you all achieve everyday. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.
