“The whole experience has been very good for myself and Sophie. Before entering the programme, Sophie was very shy and quiet and she avoided interaction with others. I was nervous about how Sophie would cope.
However, the programme has boosted her confidence and independence and has resulted in Sophie doing things that I would never have imagined her capable of doing. An example was when Sophie spoke to the insurance company on her own and on her own initiative.
The whole process has brought her on and will help her going forward especially in finding work.“
