Quote from participant about their placement

"This work placement has truly changed my working career as I have been able to stick to this job as I absolutely love being part of the team prior to securing this work placement, I couldn’t keep a job, and my employment history was extremely erratic. This opportunity gave me some consistency and a true lifeline as I was just in and out of the doctors previously - as of now I’m feeling so much better both mentally and physically."
