Dawn Monaghan, one of our Adult Team clients won the award for Information, Advice and Guidance Journey at the Kirklees Adult Learner Awards at the Town Hall on 4 July.
Dawn was nominated by her Careers Adviser Caroline for her career journey. Since her first careers appointment where they discussed future job roles, volunteering and training, Dawn has really progressed on her journey. With the advice and support from Caroline and despite being nervous, Dawn attended an art for recovery course, completed volunteer training to become a recovery champion, attended Fit 4 Life fitness classes, and has taken part in a creative writing and art class. In addition to all that, she is also currently enrolled on The LAB Project through the Proper Job Theatre Company. As a result of her increased confidence Dawn is starting Maths and English courses at Kirklees College this September.
Dawn is now feeling positive about the future “I am now a more confident and motivated person and have self-worth and everything I am doing is making me determined to eventually find work, hopefully in a supporting role. I would definitely encourage people in my position to take the first steps to getting help as by doing this and accessing the support it has totally transformed my life and I have a future.”
