"The Martin Jackaman Centre is a lovely building with great facilities. What makes it special though is the staff. They support and encourage, creating the happy, friendly atmosphere in the centre. Our son loves going and doing the varied activities on and off site. There is never a problem getting him up on his centre days. He is ready and waiting and goes off with a smile on his face. For me that says it all."
"Lawrence enjoys his days at the Martin Jackaman Centre. When I take Lawrence in the morning all I see is happy faces from service users waiting and looking forward to their day at Jackaman's. They have a nice new building, plenty of rooms and a hall. They also have a nice garden for play and sports activity. It's nice to know that they have surroundings. With planned improvements in the building it can only get better. Knowing the staff are all extremely professional makes my day less stressful."
"Martin Jackaman Centre provides a secure and happy environment where a wide variety of activities are provided to suit the particular individual needs of the citizens. Extra ventures at "Evergreen" in drama and role play have helped my daughter with self confidence and self esteem. The staff are patient and understanding of each individual which gives us, the parents and carers, peace of mind whilst my daughter , Hilary is at the Centre."
