My family have worked in different industries such as printing, building, banking and for the Police, so the notion of hard work was instilled into me from an early age. When it was time for me to make a decision on my career they were really supportive, but not everybody has that opportunity.
After receiving my Business Woman of the Year award in 2014, Baroness Stedman Scott introduced me to a charity called Tomorrow’s People. Their main objective is to take young adults who, through circumstance, haven’t finished their education, fallen from the path or overcome obstacles that have impacted their life in ways many of us can’t imagine.
They take these individuals and give them the building blocks to grow in confidence, with the sole purpose in getting them back into full time work and this is sustainable work – not just a placement.
