I realised I could do so much better with my life than endlessly jumping from one job to the other without doing what makes me happy. Today, I am so proud to say I have a clear sense of direction and now I am putting my wellbeing first before taking any decisions. WWTrust really pumped my confidence, and I wouldn’t have had the guts to make decisions which are right for me without their intervention.
My last past five months was plagued with personal tragedies. Thankfully, with the support of Access, I am again on the path of self discovery on personal fronts, as well as my training. My confidence is returning to normalcy, and my DTP training is progressing steadily. I thank all the staff for all their assistance during turbulent periods.
I had not worked for many years and my confidence was on the floor, I thought that no employer would ever consider taking me on. My first meeting with Upskill gave me a huge confidence boost and helped me to see that I had skills that an employer would want and that I just needed help getting job ready.
I suffer from Bipolar Disorder and long term, ongoing anxiety. Before meeting Working Well I believed I was not ready for employment. However, with reassurances, I became able to consider two positions with the NHS and with his help I applied for them. He also gave me benefit advice by letting me know about permitted work and then sourced the right kind of positions for me. I am now looking forward to the jobs outcome.
The Peer Support has been a great help. Thanks to the weekly discussions I’m able to unload my concerns and get the needed help where possible. For example, I have got help in getting direction to further my studies and even a little financial support.
The care, support, representation provided by WWT at a crucial time helped me feel reassured and alleviated the pressure of stress I was experiencing…they really helped my employer to understand my needs.
I have been speaking with… and she has told me how supportive you have been with her work difficulties, it’s clear having the support from yourself is really helping, in particular, to validate her experience of poor treatment.
