Some of our success stories

“Before doing this program, I was reeling from a job that left me feeling broken and self-critical, feeling like I wasn’t deserving or good enough to find work, especially work which was stable and accommodating.”

Ashley

I found it was a very interesting experience getting to meet others who were in similar positions to me, struggling looking for work, many of whom also went to the same university as me, and interestingly some of whom I even recognised from my own degree courses.”

Michael

“Last year I was diagnosed with autism. It clarified so many things that made me wonder why I was different to others, but it also gave me a sense of relief, and freedom to embrace my autistic identity.”

Annaliese

“I’ve struggled with a bit of imposter syndrome in the past, but after the thorough training and assessment program, I really felt I could demonstrate who I am and what I could do. I don’t feel as though I have to try and prove myself, I’m ready to just get in and learn the work.”
