Statement from a parent

“As a foster carer, I have found GFT to be a small provider but with a very, very big heart. I say this because it has given our child the confidence that she needed to know that she can achieve anything she wants and to that she has got the skills and qualities that employers are looking for, even though she doubted this before she came to GFT . This small provider provides vulnerable young adults with the security they need to learn and become successful. You have all made such a difference to ------’s life, where other colleges and providers have failed. ------- comes home now with enthusiasm and the belief that she can succeed, and it is reassuring to us as foster parents to know that she has found somewhere that she is prepared to stay and continue to progress into a career she loves."
