Miss Z wanted a change of direction in life and found herself moving to Slough without stable accommodation. It was then that a friend suggested she contact SHOC. From the first moment Z walked through the door in her own words “it felt like standing under an umbrella in the rain”.
After SHOC staff explained the different ways we could help, Z found accommodation with our assistance and attended courses at the Springboard Learning Centre in CV creation and job search. Using the learning from these courses Z sent off application forms and after initially obtained a work trial at Equinox she obtained a permanent position with them in August 2008. Z’s life is getting back on track and the rain has stopped!
