Employment:- I work for local authority, community groups and charities providing programs based around creativity and often enterprise to move individuals from the margins back in to the mainstream of society.
I work with young people one to one providing arts and craft skill which develop and support young adults soft skills. The aim is that on leaving me they attend college, volunteer, go back to school or work. Sometimes this happens when they are with me and I support them to make the transition.
I work with groups and classes of any age.
Often the programs include enterprise which is very satisfying for both them and me. I am passionate about small business and the amazing benefits/learning that comes from being an entrepreneur – even if its just for 6 months. The thrill of someone liking what you do and then getting money for it does wonders for self esteem.
