Small steps can achieve great results!
Our Peer Support Worker in Jaywick is happy to share that one of her participants has just had the fantastic news that he has secured a Temporary Christmas job with the Royal Mail. All our fingers are crossed that it leads on to a fulltime role in the future. He has been very keen to get involved in HeadsUp activities including Local jobs fairs, Interview Skills session’s and more recently our Mental Health wellbeing day where the group had a lovely morning on the beach – skimmed stones and then back to the Centre for Tea and scones and a chat about what wellbeing means to them.
With lots of chatting and laughter our participant encouraged a quieter member of the group to join in and she now feels more comfortable coming to the centre. His feedback on the morning ‘[the] Day has been very good, walked on the beach and had a laugh, it’s been a great day.’ He is determined to find fulltime work and travels an hour and a half on the bus for his fortnightly support sessions to see his Peer Support Worker and look for work. Next week he will be meeting with our HeadsUp Employability advisor for additional advice on how to continue to move onwards and upward.
