“Daniel said he felt a weight of responsibility lift off him when he started boarding which brought tears of joy and guilt to my eyes at everything he has gone through but now he is able to just focus on his exams and being a child thanks to your trust – thank you so much.”

Mother of Daniel


“Giving my daughter this support is a true gift. My daughter is so lucky and knows it. Everyone involved (in FTCT) is very special, giving children a chance. A big thank you.”
