"The support provided by PYO has been outstanding. A was very unhappy before the support started and she is like a totally different person now. She has definitely grown in confidence and is willing to try new experiences.  She finds the social group which is run once a week very beneficial and she very much values the 1:1 sessions that she has received. I am beyond grateful for the work that has gone into supporting A."
