Partner Feedback

The Matrix report 2015 quotes partners saying;

"They help us to reach our targets for hard to reach groups" and "Working with Destiny Support enables us to provide a service to more people".   


"I would like to congratulate Destiny Support 
on their 5th anniversary. Very few start up 
community groups grow as quickly as Destiny 
Support has over the past five years to make the 
tremendous difference they have to the lives 
of local hard to reach families facing multiple 
issues and problems.
Today, it is hard to imagine Slough without the 
numerous services that Destiny Support deliver 
to local people using the passion, energy and 
skills of volunteers. Thank you Sue Njuguna 
for your leadership of this amazing community 
group and the impact it has had on the lives of 
local people in such a short time."
Ramesh Kukar
CEO, Slough CVS

"We have been working with Sue and her 
team since Destiny Support started and 
are honoured to work alongside them as a 
multi-agency partner. Destiny Support have 
supported many of our clients in need of 
additional support services including: advice 
on health matters, debt management support, 
housing needs, and translation."
Delia Donovan
Chief Executive Officer, The Dash Charity

"Slough’s Parent Partnership Service has 
been partially commissioned to Destiny 
Support since 2010. The liaison between 
Local Authority staff and Destiny Support has 
resulted in many more contacts with families
across the community who need support with 
the education of their children & young people 
with Special Educational Needs & Disabilities. 
Destiny Support has provided volunteers who, 
once trained, are able to offer impartial and 
confidential support to the families from 
completing forms to visiting schools and 
supporting them in meetings with schools or 
other professionals. This has been particularly 
useful for families who speak a wide range of 
community languages. Destiny Support has 
also provided a more holistic service to those 
families with greater needs than can be met 
through the Parent Partnership Service."

What makes Destiny Support unique to Slough is that they are the only voluntary organisation in Slough which through processes around engagement and access support a very vulnerable, sometime hard to reach and always diverse client group.

They do this by multi-agency working around with a large number of other organisations in the town recognising that vulnerable people respond better to a whole person (holistic) approach

The main outcomes from their work is an increase in independent living and a reduction in social isolation. Destiny Support can offer help across the board from domestic violence to advocacy; from children to older people. Their works is alone is Slough in highlighting how effective the voluntary sector is when we work together to service the community.

Through partnership working with Destiny Support we are able to provide trained volunteers who support parents with special educational needs children in a variety of ways including accompanying them to school visits or meetings, helping them to complete forms & providing a mediation service should that become necessary."
