Our daughter, Jessica has just recently started work for a local business as a workshop assistant. Since starting work we have seen an enormous difference in her confidence in all areas.
She is very proud to be able to tell her friends and family about her new job and she becomes very animated and happy in the telling. Having a new focus in her life has its benefits for not only herself, but also to the whole family whom she lives with.
Having a new group of people that she works with and talks to creates new interest for her and is a huge benefit to her sense of purpose. She is learning new skills, making new friends and learning to organise herself and become more independent in the process.
Jessica had some comments to make on her job “I love my job as I am a part of a team, almost like a family. In my old job I was left alone and I got bored and lost focus. I like that Helen shows me what to and is encouraging, not telling me off for getting things wrong”.
