BBu – referred by their JCP work coach to the Forging Futures programme, (funded by the Youth Futures Foundation) in September 2023.

BBu suffers with low confidence and self-esteem. We spent a lot of time building engagement and rapport, exploring options to develop their confidence. Attending weekly one to one sessions, alongside confidence workshops with CYA and mental health awareness training delivered by Adult learning. BBu has developed greater confidence and resilience, feeling more able to explore and access opportunities.

They are now undertaking Level 2 English with Adult Learning and have also just completed 4 weeks work experience with B&M Stores in his local town.

We are really proud of them and the progress they have made.

Brandon say “ he is very grateful for the opportunity that CYA has given him”
