 A Word

From Our Founder

” It has been a great passion of mine to ensure that children, young people and families have access to support that strengthens families and improves children’s life chances. When I came back from working in the States, I could not find the support my children needed. I set up Jump Start to help my children, and hope that you too find Jump Start still offers the same friendly, professional, non judgemental support to you and yours.”

– Claire Pemrick
