Read what children and young people think about The Limes.
The Limes has shown me what I can do and never said I can’t do anything.
I have been supported to make choices and tell others about my needs. The Limes worked with the people that are important to me to help me make choices.
I had such a great time, I loved it. I want to say a special thanks to Elen and Maria for that day.
