“I have been working at Building Blocks Family Centre for over 15 years, it is a privilege to be part of so many children’s and families journeys. It’s amazing to be part of the change when families first come to us struggling and nowhere else to turn and we stay with them whilst they grow and then no longer need us anymore”
