Real stories of Progress

Will's Story

When William approached our Progress Futures service for support, he was extremely shy and anxious, regularly experiencing negative thoughts and lacking confidence. He lived on his own
with the shared responsibility of his two teenage children. Money was tight as he hadn’t worked for numerous years due to his poor mental health, and he was fairly isolated and didn’t get out much.

Our team worked with him to support him with GP appointments, producing a CV, secure volunteering opportunities, and change his approach to managing his mental and physical well-being. With our help, William says he is a much more confident, healthy, stronger individual who now has skills, structure, and purpose in life.
