Here are some of the comments of parents and kids that have visited us.
I live on the other side of Haringey... I come to visit my friend and he brought me here [Somerford Grove] ... It's the best place in the world; I wish I lived round here so I can come here all the time. Yusef, 11yrs
I always come here; it's the best place in the world... just like a funfair... I love it here [Somerford Grove] Kiera, 11yrs
There is not much for autistic kids in this area. Somerford Grove is mainstream and my autistic boy loves it here... it is well staffed and I'm not worried about bullying... Louie has made friends here... he approaches other children to play! His confidence has grown so much since coming to Somerford Grove, I usually come here on Saturdays and holidays, I don't know what I'd do without this place" (Local Parent)
It's my first time here [Somerford Grove] ... It's absolutely wonderful! I wish there was something like this in my borough (Brent)" (Local Parent)
