Employment Support Success

01 April 2022

We have been supporting Soren on our Thriving at Work project in North Yorkshire since last year. She has a job in the accommodation cleaning team at Blue Dolphin. When Soren started at Blue Dolphin last season she was very nervous and had not worked for two years due to anxiety and depression. It was a big step for Soren to start working again, especially during the pandemic. 

Soren's manager is delighted with her work, so much so she has been moved onto owners caravans! Her manager, Ange said "Soren has progressed so much from last season to this season. She has sped up her cleaning time and is cleaning more caravans in her shifts than last season. She is very independent but isn’t afraid to ask if she needs anything. Her confidence has grown so much and we can all see the improvement in her. She is a highly valued member of the team and we are all so very proud of her."

Well done Soren, we're really proud of you! She told us "A little support can go a long way. Sometimes it was just having a listening ear. You were able to translate my Autism needs to Ange in a way that I couldn’t explain them to her. If it wasn’t for you coming to see me every week, I would have given up a long time ago.’

Hear from Soren and the impact the Thriving at Work project has had on her employment journey.

"After a two month placement at Mayfield I now feel ready to look for a job, Autism Plus are supporting me to develop my interview skills."
