The Shine Project

Beautiful . Valuable . Loveable . Unique

Thank you for running such a superb course for Looked after Children in Poole. Hayley, who led the course, was excellent. The sessions were always dynamic with excellent content. Thanks also to the volunteers who helped the sessions to run smoothly. The young people and Carers I spoke with really valued the course and felt it had a positive impact on their foster child. Thank you once again. Action for Children 2015

The Course is really effective and the girls get a lot out of it. The girls love doing the course and it makes a real difference to their confidence. Shine works wonders with our female pupils, it’s a lovely course and we are proud to offer it in our School. Glenmoor School 2015

It was great that we were able to talk about our feelings and problems freely and not have to worry about being judged - Shine Girl, Bishop of Winchester 2015

I feel more confident in myself and I have learnt that it is better not to bottle things up.* Shine girl, Twynham School 2015 * Thank you it was really great how we could talk about our emotions - Shine Girl, St Aldhelms Academy 2015

10/10 - I want to do Shine again! - Shine girl, Poole High School 2015

It’s been a wonderful experience for my foster daughter and she has looked forward to every meeting. There is a definite change in her attitude towards herself- thoughts about her hair and skin and how improvements can be made leading to an empathy to people worse off and never get the support and encouragement she has received. Many, Many thanks. Carer 2015
