Louise's story

“I have worked closely with Glow staff Cassie and Sarah for a number of years. 

“The service is absolutely brilliant and the support utterly priceless for our young people. 

“The staff are experienced and professional, with a wealth of knowledge about healthy and unhealthy relationships and working with young people to recognise the signs, and work to empower young people to use strategies to manage their individual situation.

“Having Glow involved in supporting our students has been a total success story for our young people.”
