Sheree changed her life


Sheree hadn't worked for years because of depression but through her self-belief she now has the job of her dreams... 

Because of problems in my youth, I suffered from depression for decades. The Job Centre sent me on many different interviews over the years, with people that were trained to get me back into work. Nothing worked.

Then, I was given an appointment to meet Roy, an employment advisor from Twining. 

Everything changed, somehow he convinced me that I was strong enough to change my life.

He told me that work can help combat depression because confidence and self-worth would follow. And boy, was he right. I took everything Roy taught me and I applied, not just for a job, but the job I had always dreamed of doing!

Roy dropped everything and helped me build a C.V., that very day. Which was not easy, as I hadn't had a job since 1976.

I got the job, and the rest is history. Six months into my new job as a support worker, I have won an award for my hard work and care, and the Job Centre invited me to give an inspirational talk to help others that need confidence to get back into work.

I just want to say to anyone reading this, I will be sixty in two years, if I can do it, you can do it!
