This year I found myself a single parent after being a stay-at-home mum for twenty years. I thought I had nothing to offer the world especially with few qualifications.
Cathy showed me I had plenty of skills to offer the world, and helped me to word and fill out applications. My confidence grew.
I got a placement for a few weeks, and later Cathy helped me prepare for an interview. I was successful and I’m really enjoying my new job!Sandra Peterson (Anon)
Little Green Fingers Activity
“My daughter loved digging and planting flowers, watering them & also playing in the mud kitchen.”
“The best thing has been being able to get stuck in – a child-friendly safe environment”
Family Links Nurturing Programme
“It was an easy-going and fun atmosphere. I felt very respected and felt if I had a question or disagreed I could share this”
“I’d certainly recommend the programme to other parents…”
When I contacted The Berin Centre, I was juggling two jobs, one of which I was having to get lifts to, now the bus to Didcot isn’t running. It wasn’t ideal.
I also struggled with my English, coming from abroad. So Cathy helped me highlight my skills and qualities, and found me a Kitchen Porter job in walking distance from my home.
I really enjoy working with the team, and since have received a promotion, I’m now a Sous-Chef!James Davis (Anon)
