New project arrival!

In recent weeks, we’ve said a temporary goodbye to Yachna, one of our Project Employment Support Officers (ESO). This is so she can focus upon the newest addition to her family (and the GREAT Project team); her baby girl!

Yachna joined the project in 2018 and has been a fantastic asset to the project; working extremely hard to make a difference within the lives of GREAT participants and their families. She has helped many people into new opportunities before and during the Covid-19 pandemic, in spite of the challenges they face. Whilst Yachna is on maternity leave, ESO Desrie will be providing support to participants within the North East and central Leicester regions.

From all of us at the GREAT Project, Voluntary Action Leicestershire, and sister project YES, we wish Yachna and her family all the very best in their new life chapter.
