  • the opportunity to meet new people, experience new opportunities and improve your confidence.

Richard worked for us for seven months up to March 2015 when he successfully got a job.  He said of his experience ‘it has been a pleasure and a privilege to help out such amazing people these last 7 months.  I thank you all for your patience, support and advice on jobs and life. 

My time here has not been wasted as I have gained confidence within myself and my abilities due to helping you and being with such a group of genuine lovely people.’
