Participant Supported Into Employment

Employment Support Officer Phil had great news to share with the team about one of his participants who exited the Project recently.

The participant, who has moderate learning difficulties, joined the GREAT project in March 2021. He couldn’t find a job after the local coffee shop he worked at closed when the owners retired.

Unsure of his next steps, the participant was anxious about finding work in a new environment. His main goal was to find part-time employment, he felt having a job would help him feel happier, more valued and improve his general wellbeing.

With support from his Employment Support Officer and the wider GREAT Project team, the participant has secured a job at a local catering venue in Leicester and is really enjoying his new role.
