We have helped Andy from Redcar with a number of things that were stopping him from looking for work:
Mental ill health - we attended appointments with Andy and gave him advice and guidance on courses help improve confidence, motivation and stop him being isolated.
Addiction - Andy was drinking every day because of his mental health issues. We arranged for him to attend support sessions and is now sober.
Isolation - we arranged for him to attend several workshops to improve positive thinking and empowerment.
Andy feels the help and support he received whilst working with SFTV has helped improve his mental-ill health and given him the confidence to pursue new adventures. He has left Step Forward and is now on a training course and hoping to find work.
