  • Completed entry level 1 IT and level 1 English qualification 
     

  • Volunteering with Mind café in Redcar 
     

  • Attending a monthly women's coffee morning
     

  • Joining the local library 
     

  • Attended a Community Heroes volunteering event at Leonard Cheshire Saltburn 
     

  • Accessed one-to-one support with Safe in Tees Valley for digital skills.
     

Leanne has thoroughly enjoyed her new experiences and  has been a great part of the groups and teams she has joined.
