Building Confidence – Stephen’s Story

Having left his job as a forklift driver in December 2018, Stephen, although having applied for various roles, was struggling to find employment.

Unmotivated and disheartened by this, Stephen was referred to the Positive People project delivered by Active Plus.

Since leaving his last job, Stephen’s forklift license expired which made it harder for him to find employment. Positive People supported him to regain his license, while working with him to build up his confidence, motivation and rebuild his self-esteem.

Stephen also attended the six week course lead by the Active Plus Veterans who help with confidence and motivation.

Active Plus and Positive People worked with Stephen, giving him realistic goals and targets to aim for to help him move forward. Stephen has now secured a job as a forklift driver for Parcel Force.

Stephen said, “I would like to say thank you to my Change Coach, Jane, for all the help and assisting me in building my confidence and gaining employment.”

Well done Stephen!
