    ‘I have had an incredible week and I have seen and done more than I could have asked for… it’s given me a great insight into the working world and Contact.’


      ‘All the staff have been so kind, welcoming and helpful, and if anyone is thinking of doing work experience here I would definitely recommend it! Thank you for making it so enjoyable and interesting, and not just getting me to make cups of tea!’
