“Like a hotel!”
We are delighted to have opened a new contact room within Jigsaw. Thanks to our Capital Appeal donors we have been able to refurnish a former office as a second space for family contact.
We designed the new room with older children in mind to ensure that they feel comfortable, welcome and at home with us. We decorated and furnished the space specifically to make it more suitable and attractive for older children, who are very sensitive to any suggestion of “being put with the babies”. We have kept a baby and toddler focus in the original flatlet.
The new room is a bright and spacious room and comfortably fits two big sofas and a table and chairs. The room has a fridge and a microwave so that families can prepare and share meals together. There is plenty for older children to do, including crafts, board games, table football and a TV with an Xbox.
“Wow, mum, it’s like a hotel, can we stay here?” said one 10-year old recently.
Jigsaw is available for supervised and assessed, supported and unsupervised family support, open from 9am - 6pm Mondays to Fridays and 9am - 5 pm Saturdays.
