I wanted to start by introducing myself. My name is Jennifer Hewitt and I am the new Head of Services and Learning here at Daisy Chain. I have dedicated my entire career to working with families affected by autism and have just returned from nearly ten years in America working for a charity that provided equine therapy and outdoor learning opportunities to autism families.

I came into position at Daisy Chain in early April this year and one of the first things that struck me was the dedication that the organisation as a whole shows to the families and young people that access its services, and also the appreciation and affection that those families and individuals show in return. It truly is an honour to be working for what has been described as one of Teesside’s "best-loved charities."

Now that I am settled in and have learnt everyone’s name and where to find the staples, I am keen to get started on ensuring that we continue to run our current services to the best of our ability and develop new services in line with what you, the families and young people that access Daisy Chain, actually need. The individuals that access our services are the reason that we are here and we want to make sure that we are providing you with the services and support that you need most. To ensure that we are doing this, I would really appreciate your help by taking a few moments to complete a short survey by clicking on the link below:

Your feedback will help us assess your needs and introduce new services and types of support that are tailored to you. Please be assured that your responses will be kept completely anonymous. If you have any questions about this survey or want the opportunity to provide some more in-depth feedback, then please free to e-mail me at any time at jennifer.hewitt@daisychainproject.co.uk 

I really appreciate your input and look forward to meeting as many of you as possible in the coming days, weeks and months!
