“Real opportunities supported me by giving me the chance to get into college then get an interview. I found it difficult to get work as I have 7 children but only 5 live at home, but now I have put things in place and I love working full time. It has given me more confidence in myself and I now feel I can cope with whatever happens, having my own wages is great and I don’t ever want to back on JSA."

“I would like to thank you for the help and support in finding a perfect job by not only sending me the vacancies but also helping me to apply for them.”
