What do people say about us?

Before I went on the course, I had no confidence and I couldn’t speak for myself but the course really helped me come out of my shell. From the ice breaker challenge to the guest speakers they organised, The Trust taught me new ways of putting myself out there. For example, one week when I was in church, I even put myself forward to speak which I never would have done before because I lacked self-esteem.

I have attended group sessions such as Managing Feelings which has helped me understand how to cope and channel my emotions in the correct way, and My Vision which has helped me set goals and how I can achieve them. It also helped me to identify my skills which I can put on my CV. I have been speaking to other people on sessions and this helped improve my communication skills and feel confident when speaking to people.
