“It has given me the opportunity to reach children and families who may never have been able to access therapy or support in the way that we give. It has allowed me to work with a variety of people and explore my practise over the years, enabling me to become the practitioner I am..”

“I think PLP MAST have the balance just right, they emapthise with the challenges schools face and they respond in a timely manner. They support, guide and advise, but are not unrealistic or judgemental. We feel supported and guided in a way no other service can match at present..”

"From my first days over 10 years ago as one of 4 PAPH members, I have enjoyed the challenges and rewards. Being part of a team that was innovative in a fast-moving environment made each day, week, month, and year feel different, but the end goal was always to support and be there for our schools. I take pride in my work and am proud to be part of PLP."

"We have used the Health and Safety service from PLP for a number of years and I cannot recommend their service enough. They provide accurate and timely health and safety advice, with an understanding of the challenges faced by schools. They have helped me to save money by avoiding unnecessary expenditure or recommending contractors offering value for money on their services. Easily accessible by email and mobile phone, they have certainly been on hand to help out in a crisis too."
