One of our young adults has successfully gained a new job delivering the community newspaper. She overcame some initial disappointment when the papers arrived later than expected and went on to ensure everything else was planned in advance of making the deliveries.
Initially, a member of staff supported her from a distance, ensuring she delivered on the right roads and didn’t miss any houses, but this was almost not necessary as she was fantastic and didn’t need much prompting! She delivered all 190 papers for one of her rounds, making sure it was carried out properly and professionally. She remained focussed throughout and after about 3 hours of delivering and 12,000 steps she completed it. She was extremely proud of herself and is really pleased to have a job that she gets paid for, her earnings will be saved up and hopefully used on a holiday next year.
This is a wonderful example of the progression made since being within SES and a fantastic success story, as this would have been unachievable for her a few years ago.
