Testimonies

Victoria Clemson – TaMHS nurse

“Working with Carol (Raise) is professional and reliable. We ran a group together for young people who’s parents have mental health problems. They weren’t young carers as such but needed support to understand their parents’ issues. Raise helped and supported the young people so they have a healthier and understanding relationship with their parents. This enables the child to flourish in all aspects of their growth as a young person. We have seen such an improvement in their achievement in school and their families’ relationship with school. Thank you Raise…”

Jemimah Taylor – Young person

“I had so much fun being part of one of Carol’s ‘Raise Your Voice’ choirs. It gives you a chance to spend time with a great bunch of people with the same interests as you whilst learning new songs and singing techniques. Carol is a great, friendly leader and she is very inventive with the stuff you do. She was a source of inspiration for when I led my own singing group!”

Tim Elgar – former CEO of E:merge youth organisation

“I can’t recommend Raise enough to help you develop and deliver life changing programmes and activities for children. Led by Carol who is an incredibly experienced deliverer, she has helped us at e:merge develop relevant resources and has had an incredible impact on many young people. If you need support and ideas for work with children in schools or in the community then look no further.”

Parent- Raise and Shine Story Time

The Raise and Shine story time album came into our lives at the perfect time- just like Carol herself did! It’s inspired, inspiring and fun and the songs are written with a wealth of experience behind them which makes them beautiful and real. Me and my nearly one year old are looking forward to the next album
