In April 2017 Martin* came to an Open Day after hearing about us through a key-worker in the hostel he was living in at the time. As he progressed through the 3-month Programme, getting training in the Employment Academy with onsite work experience with the reception team in the club at The House of St Barnabas, things started to change.
He graduated in August 2017 and now has a job working at Deloitte with their in-house catering department.
Through our Accommodation Pathway scheme, he is living in a shared house with other graduates from the programme. Life is busy but he is enjoying being back at work and living with supportive people. The House of St Barnabas has matched him with a mentor and one of our Employment Support Officers. This 12-month progression support will help him thrive and stay in work.
