Client and Partner Testimonials
Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients and partners say:
Many thanks once again for the training The Hummingbird Project provided to Supporting Communities – really impressed and the staff were very impressed and thought the content was spot on so well done to you all.
CEO – Supporting Communities NI
PwC has been working with The Hummingbird Project for the last 2 years on our Into Tomorrow programme, which supports a group of vulnerable, marginalised young people who have mental health issues. During this period I have been so impressed by their hard work, dedication, enthusiasm and professionalism. They go above and beyond what is expected of them. Those young people get stability back into their lives as the staff from the Hummingbird become, a friend, a brother, a sister, a parent, someone they can rely on. What has struck me the most is, if they say they are going to do something they do. I look forward to working with them for many more years.
Thanks to the Hummingbird Project for delivering an excellent programme to Network Personnel service users. They knew exactly how to interact with the clients, speaking to them on their level about situations the staff did not understand or recognise but the clients obviously did. The content was humorous yet very relevant and thought provoking. The programme set individual challenges for clients to find ways to overcome their own barriers.
