Friends of Sapphire
Read some testimonials from some of the partners who help to deliver the vision we have for the young people who attend Sapphire
Emma's Crazy Creatures
"Sapphire is a partnership close to our hearts, having worked with them on numerous occasions since its inception. Upon entering the centre there is such a fantastic feeling of warmth, family and friendship. It's always amazing to come and meet the young adults and show them my crazy creatures. They appear to get so much from the visits and sessions. Equally, the staff are wonderful and take a real interest in ensuring you have everything you need to deliver your service. I regard Sapphire and its wonderful people as a close friend and always relish going to see them. Thank you for letting me be a part of the Sapphire family. The work they do is so important and valued by all, as it is so clear to see from those that are involved. Emma"
Ian Bamford Music
"Having worked with the Sapphire team delivering a variety of music sessions, I have found all the staff to be extremely welcoming and very supportive. They are dedicated to facilitating innovative, creative and practical life skill sessions and put the young people they work with at the heart of everything they do. I thoroughly enjoy working in partnership with them. Ian"
Mama Bear Creates
"I have worked with Sapphire since September 2019, doing craft activities with the young adults using their service. I have found Jen and her team extremely good to work with on many levels. From formal and informal emails or phone calls, finding or figuring out what services/activities the young people in their care would like to do. When I am with them, the young people have been encouraged by the staff to help make decisions on what craft activities they would like to do, whilst still trying to stretch them beyond the abilities they think they have, the staff don't just do things for them.
The team of staff that work at Sapphire work really well with all the service users. They are able to have a giggle with them but also able to be firm and encouraging when need.
In my opinion Sapphire is an amazing asset to the adult learning sector in Bolton. Georgina"
"The Sapphire Partnership is a really rewarding organisation to be involved with.
It is an extremely friendly and welcoming environment, where everyone has a smile on their face when you walk in. The staff really do care about the young adults who attend, they go above and beyond to create a positive and inclusive experience for all.
It really is a fantastic place to be. Tim"
