“We are proud to say that the last week has been busy. For a start, we have been able to engage with Skills Training UK with whom we are working to provide work placements for their students to support them with access to employment and apprenticeship opportunities. We have had a very bright young man who has managed the day to day tasks of filing and answering the telephone with ease so that we were Able to focus on the real reasons for our centre. As a result we were able to successfully advocate for a client who came to us because his Universal Credit had been stopped and he didn’t understand why. We were able to get these re-instated with immediate effect. The client was so happy, he has referred a friend of his with who we are working with to navigate through her numerous welfare benefits.
Another successful outcome from this week is that we were able to support a gentleman who had applied for a Masters course with a university to write his Personal Statement and offer career advice after which we successfully submitted the application to the university. Suffice to say he was ecstatic!
