I have been volunteering at Mansfield Woodhouse Children's Centre since Sept 2014 and helped in Stay and Play and the local library session, while my son was in nursery. I applied for a Midday meals supervisor job at local schools and was supported by the Children's Centre with references and interview techniques. I started there on a temporary basis in Jan 2016 but still attended the Children's Centre to offer support in clinic and big adventures group. The staff have been supportive, worked with me to develop my confidence and recently helped me apply for a permanent post within a different local school.
I feel I have been really supported to move on with my life, earn money and to get a permanent post. It's almost been a two year journey but I am really pleased to have come this far.
