"My new found confidence"

About: South Yorkshire Housing Association Limited / Working Win

(as a service user),

I have been out of work since December 2017  due to Ill health, I suffer badly with Arthritis and this meant I found working in care was no longer an option at the time. Due to this I suffered with depression as finding work became difficult. and the longer out of work I was the harder it felt to get back in, I didn't have any confidence searching for jobs online or using much IT equipment also. 

Since being on the Working Win service, my confidence has been increased as I have managed to find employment with the support I have received . My coach has helped me in applying for jobs via email, with my CV and also sorting out documents for when I started my new role. It has been very personalised.

With my new found confidence I have put myself onto many courses such as retail and IT.  Now over time as my health has improved I felt ready to return to work and received great support which I am grateful for.
