Joy's Story

"This project has been a really blessing to me. I have been so happy to work here as I was wondering how I would get back into work after such a long time at home.

The staff there have been very flexible when my son’s afternoon classes changed days and times, working with me and other staff to change rotas and timetables to make it possible for me to continue doing all my shifts.

I would like to get a job as a school dinner lady and my time here has helped my confidence and experience working with both food and with children."

Gift’s Story

"I would definitely recommend anyone looking for training and some work in one of the fields I’m working in here to come in and sign up for this project. It’s made a real difference to me and my family and I know it would to others too!” .

This project has been a really blessing to me. On the one hand I am so happy to have found a place to learn and work that is so close to my children’s school. I remember wondering how, with all my life challenges and the fact I hadn’t worked before, I would find my way into the world of work. I have been very pleased that Harmony House made this opportunity available to me."
