"What Rachel House means to us"

About: CHAS at Home Rachel House

(as a service user),

Our visits to Rachel House and the support we receive is so extremely precious to us. We visit every few months and look forward to a full nights sleep upstairs with our daughters whilst our son is cared for by the staff downstairs.

The staff have also been amazing at making things happen for us and our wish for camping with our son was made a reality and we camped in Rachel House garden.

We can’t compare the support we get from CHAS to anything else. Thank you all xxx

Hi "Mum to 4"

Thank you so much for your kind feedback!

It means so much to us to know that we have been able to make a difference and help families experience situations they might otherwise have thought impossible - I am so glad you all enjoyed camping in the garden (hoping you stayed warm and cosy!)

The team will be delighted to hear that you are feeling so well supported by CHAS.

Look forward to more fun in the future!

Best wishes

Hi Mum to 4

Thank you so much for your comment, It is really kind of you to take the time to respond, It is really important that we hear how we are doing.

I am so glad you had a great time camping, I remember the huge tent with the amazing lights and decorations, I also remember the laughing coming from the tent.

I am looking forward to this summer to see what else we can get up to!!

All the best
