I was a little bit stressed when I went to my first appointment and wasn’t sure what to expect. However, after meeting and talking with my employment adviser and seeing how welcoming everyone was and how understanding they were of my problems, I could really believe that they would help me to build a future in the UK. They had ideas and practical solutions- from finding English courses to securing funding for vocational courses. Whenever I attended an appointment, I felt rehabilitated and on track to finding a worthwhile job and feeling a part of society.
