My advice for anyone who is feeling isolated or lonely would be: don’t hesitate to reach out for help. Take that risk; if you don’t, you’ll never know if it might have made things better. I was hugely sceptical at first – and I’ve never looked back. - Stuart

Everyone makes mistakes, it's part of being human and what makes us who we are. As Nelson Mandela said "Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again. - Becky

To anyone who's going through the same sort of challenges I did, I'd say don't delay in asking Foothold for support. They changed mine and my daughter's life, and they might just change yours. - John

We’ve been through such an ordeal as a family – it makes me feel emotional just thinking about it. It was constant dead end after dead end. I didn’t know what else I could do. But within a few days of my call to Foothold, I got a response with an offer of support for counselling sessions. I’m just very, very, very grateful that they had my back. - Alina

Foothold’s support has been a godsend to us. They literally saved me from bankruptcy and a life on the streets. And I’ve been able to be a good father and get my son the support he needs too. - Mark

Hard times affect most of us but they soon pass. Be encouraged. Trust and hope. Reach out for help. You are not alone in your situation. - Anon

Remember 'you' are our children's future. teach wisely the rights and wrongs. Bless you all for your dedication to detail. - John
