Ruby* was referred to our Skills for Life by the Support Alliance floating support team and attended a course between July and September this year.
Ruby was enthusiastic about the course. She got fully involved bringing her own experiences to each session and making notes to help develop her knowledge despite struggling with pain as a result of a recent accident. Being able to understand and demonstrate this boosted Ruby’s confidence enormously.
This was an amazing step forward for Ruby who shared that she had always been told by her mum that she didn’t have the capability to undertake academic learning and so had always actively avoided it. Ruby now feels able to consider other courses she previously thought were beyond her capabilities.
Debbie Evans, Employment Advisor for The Support Alliance, joined the last session to talk about other opportunities for training and employment and following a referral, Ruby is working with Debbie to work out her next steps.
We have been really pleased to see the positive changes in Ruby and are excited for her future!
