‘When I got on to the midwifery course I was worried that I would struggle academically because of my dyslexia. However, my tutor has been an amazing support to me throughout my 3 years at university. Without her support and guidance, I would have not been able to have got the grades I've got’.

‘My tutor has been extremely helpful during my time at University, from previously not accepting or benefiting from support Isobel has been a breath of fresh air. She has given me skills which I will take onto employment and can always remember her tips when writing my essays. I have seen an improvement in my grades and my own writing because of her support. Thank you.’

I have the up most respect for what this Foundation dose, I recently found out I was dyslexic and it came at a very hard time in my studies. Without the help of the Foundation I don’t seriously don’t know how I would have got through my 2nd year of university, everyone who I have had contact with from the Foundation have been friendly reliable an very knowledgeable in helping an teaching skills needed to complete work and even help organise an already hectic schedule. I can’t say how much I appreciated the help that I received and would recommend this Foundation to anyone.
