Headway Bedford has worked with The Regency Training Foundation for over 5 years. Their 6 week Confidence in the Community course has been well received by our clients who have suffered a life changing brain injury. Their professional and friendly approach to this tricky subject has meant that many clients have been successful in pushing themselves out of their comfort zone and thereby progressing further in their rehabilitation. We look forward to continuing our partnership with them in the future.
Queens Park Neighbourhood Centre Manager
"We encourage and welcome The Regency Training Foundations' involvement in the Centre as we believe that it is through adult learning and development that children's outcomes are enhanced. Increased self-esteem and confidence will improve families' capacity to access and engage with the services they want. Through learning, enjoying and achieving, these adults will be able to make a more positive contribution to supporting their children and securing more positive futures for them."
Manager Project 229 Kempston
"Project 229 has had the pleasure of housing and working with a number of The Regency Training Foundations' short courses and activity programmes. We have found the staff and course providers of the Foundation to be very approachable and professional. It has been a pleasure working with The Regency Training Foundation and we hope that we are able to do more partnership working in the very near future."
Mental Health Support Manager
"It is such a worthwhile course that you are offering to enable people to improve the quality of life and giving them confidence and tools to cope."
MP Bedford and Kempston
"I enjoyed visiting your session, I was impressed with the positive attitude of the clients and staff and I was pleased to be able to talk with several of them afterwards."
Director of Vista St Albans
"Vista St Albans has worked in partnership with Regency Training Foundation for the past 3/4 years. Vista supports children, young people and parents who suffer difficulties in their lives through illness, bereavement, loss, family breakdown, confidence and low self esteem. Our cases are referred to us from schools, Social Services, the Police or CAMHS. Vista and Regency have linked together to fund projects and programmes for children aged 8 - 14 years. We have worked in partnership to seek funding and deliver four or six week programmes for Young Carers, vulnerable children and adults. This partnership has proved to be very rewarding and successful. Vista has enjoyed being able to offer a wider service for our families and has found working with Patricia and her team a very pleasant experience."
"Patricia and her team created a pleasant and friendly environment for our members to learn. We appreciated the way that the course was run in such a way that all our members irrelevant of ability could enjoy the course and participate. We felt that it was run well and Patricia managed to make it enjoyable for all. We would have no hesitation to welcome them back for any future courses."
"This course has changed my life forever, I cannot thank you enough"
"I really enjoyed and gained confidence in sharing things with the group"
"I have made new friends through the group"
"I couldn't believe that I stood up in front of everybody and talked about myself"

My confidence is back - I'd lost it"
"It has been a confidence boost - I can now put my hand up in class and think 'Yes! I've done it!'"
I've met and made loads of friends"
