Lucy's Story

Lucy is one of many young people who have taken part in the project so far. She has developed her social skills, confidence and self-esteem with support from DurhamWorks. Her youth coach helped her to apply for jobs and apprenticeships and to prepare for interviews.

Following a successful interview, Lucy was offered a work trial and has now been taken on as an apprentice in a coffee shop. She is doing brilliantly and has settled in well. She still works with her youth coach and receives extra support when necessary. Lucy is so pleased with the support she received she has recommended her friend to DurhamWorks!

If you know of any young people who need assistance in accessing opportunities, please contact DurhamWorks on 03000 262930 email us at
