Katie's story

Katie is a mother of two young children who suffers from severe post natal depression, mental health issues and desperate feelings of isolation.

Katie’s husband left the family home after struggling to work full time, looking after the children and deal with the stress of Katie’s volatile mental illness.

Katie, alone with her two children, was unable to work and is now faced additional financial pressure to cover extra rental expenses. Her health suffered as a result.

Windermere provided Katie with support through counselling, housing and referrals to other necessary expertise. This allowed Katie to meet practical challenges, such as a place to live, as well as better manage her mental issues.

Testimonial

I respect each child's individuality and needs and want to help them feel safe and secure so they can grow and learn in a natural environment. The early years are the foundations of learning for the rest of their lives.

Learning in a step by step process that we have to follow, we can’t reach the last step without stepping the first step. If we as educators succeed in building trust and connectivity then learning is fun. “To be in your children’s memories tomorrow, you have to be in their lives today”.

The amazing opportunity I got coming into the Windermere house and the 100% that I put into the program, has given me and my son a roof over our head and a second chance at a normal life.
