Read first-hand accounts of how Step Up has helped local residents:
“It was good to talk to you too, you sound like just the boost I need to up my confidence.”
“Thank you for your emails. They are appreciated. You are really doing a great job trying to help people in these difficult times.”
“Thanks for all your help. I’ve had a verbal job offer with a view to start on July 1st in a role that promises many opportunities to learn new things!”
“The manager said I had a really good interview….. I only smashed it because of the support/confidence you (Step Up) gave to me”
“Step Up received a call from a resident whose role had recently been made redundant due to Covid. An advisor had been communicating with her over Facebook, which had led to her making contact. The resident went on to say how the advisor made her feel so positive and really explained how the programme could support her to find work, feeding back “tell her she’s saved my life”. She went on to say Step Up had given her hope for the future – after previously feeling very down she now can’t wait to get started.”
