“Riverside has provided me with funding to do Forest School Leader training. This gave me the opportunity to gain a qualification that has allowed me to start a new career, providing a sustainable future for myself and my family.

I can’t thank Riverside’s colleagues enough for making my dream come true” – Rachel from Leicester
