I've never looked back since getting my job. Working gives me financial independence, confidence and a sense of well-being.
The programme isn't just about finding work, it is about getting support from a range of different people including the health and wellbeing team.
My advisor and I did a lot of preparation and a few days after my interview I got the call to say I was successful - I was over the moon!
My advisor was brilliant and helped me make my self-employment dream a reality.
Being in work makes me feel part of the community. I am no longer vulnerable but now feel valuable.
It was here that I met some friends and came across a cleaning role that I knew would be perfect for me.
I love my work and I am really good at it. It has given me confidence as well as money that gives me freedom to do things I couldn't do before.
