Tim’s Story

Having been released from Prison I found myself in a new City, Norwich. I was out walking and came across The FEED on Prince of Wales Road and decided to go in for a coffee. Whilst in the café I noticed the board and that they provided support to people such as myself. I had never experienced anything like this and so made an appointment.

At the appointment I was also put in touch with others to provide peer mentoring, was given access to a laptop and the ability to undertake a level 3 qualification. I was able to learn how to create a CV and start applying for jobs and I plan to use my life experiences to help others.

This opportunity has opened my eyes, created opportunities, helped me take the steps needed to get to where I want to be and is making my dream a reality. Although I needed encouragement it surrounded me with positive people and I can now do things for myself.

I cannot recommend this enough, it provided me with as much 1 to 1 support as I needed specialising in training and employment, and all for free.
