Stories from our pilot programme…
Woin and Hanna worked on the business plan and social media for Woin's vegan catering company. Having run her own food business in the past, Hanna was well placed to support Woin to submit a grant application, improve her social media presence and think about how her catering menu is presented.
Becky has been doing work experience with the events team in Harriet's work space, which has helped with her self-confidence and means that she now has references to add to her CV. One of Harriet's colleagues donated a laptop, which Becky uses for online courses to boost English and Maths skills.
Nicole supported Sandra to put in an application for a free laptop, which was successful. Using Sandra's new laptop, Nicole supported Sandra to improve her digital skills, in particular Excel and word processing, which will help Sandra to apply for volunteering opportunities.
