I would like to thank you for sticking with Sarah and giving Greenwich a great service.  I will miss coming to visit, unless I get a new young person who needs a loving and supportive home and will definitely keep Sandilands in mind as and when this happens.

Greenwich Children’s Services

Thank you all for the wonderful support, guidance, care and amazing work you do with our young people. I’ve been extremely impressed with you all and as a social worker, appreciate all of your dedication to good practice.

Hounslow Children’s Services

I would like to express my extreme gratitude and thanks for all the wonderful care and guidance given to my daughter at Oathill Lodge, she has been kept safe and well. The staff at Oathill are all very professional and very, very caring. The activities are marvelous, my daughter really loves her singing lessons.
