Nicole’s Story

After suffering from mental health issues, Nicole struggled with motivation to do simple things like leaving the house. She heard about the project from Voluntary Norfolk whom she was put in touch with by Better Together Norfolk.

Nicole joined with the goal of finding part-time work to get out of the house for the benefit of her mental health. From there, she completed her job goals and gained more and more confidence to feel prepared in applying for work. She was eventually given the opportunity to apply for a trainee position within the project, working for Future Projects one of the project’s Partners, which she found suitable as she had previous experience and personal confidence. Nicole has now been accepted for a full-time position in mental health and is excited for the future that lies ahead of her.

“In my new position, I will be highly recommending this project to future clients. It has been an amazing opportunity and would love to thank everyone for all their support and help throughout this process which has been life-changing for me.” – Nicole.
