Prospects helps individuals to overcome their difficulties
"I have found working with Prospects one of the best experiences of my life."
Before contacting Prospects Laura* faced a number of difficulties in her personal life, and consequently struggled with mental health problems and anxiety. She was put in touch with Prospects who enrolled her on the Government's Work Programme.
What Prospects did
Working with her mentor in Somerset, Laura spent two years on the programme learning invaluable skills and most importantly building her confidence and resilience for life. "I have faced many difficulties through the past years, but have always found my mentor Lisa* happy to help, even if it is with last minute job interview practice or helping me to believe in myself," explains Laura.
"I have always felt welcome while visitng their office in Taunton, and even felt confident enough to join in with a number of group sessions. Prospects have improved my confidence, showed me techniques to cope with my anxiety and helped get me to a stage in my life where I feel ready for employment," Laura adds.
Outcomes and results
"My two years on the Work Programme have been of great value and help to me and I shall continue to use everything I have learnt to thrive in all my future employments."
