Over the years LifeBridge has worked hard to push learners to achieve their goals of employment. Whether this be in part time employment, paid employment or voluntary work, we celebrate every achievement for each individual. Take a look at a few of our LifeBridge success stories.
Connor started a work placement at Carrs Pasties each Tuesday where he ‘carved’ a job for himself, making up and labelling the boxes of pasties to be delivered all over the country. Connor has now achieved paid part time employment at Carrs.
Connor also works as a volunteer at Bolton Hospice every Thursday; he has been doing this for over 4 years. Connor has a fantastic work ethic and is a very reliable member of staff.
Amazing job Connor, what an achievement!
Kane had a working interview at ASDA which was very successful. He had a day's taster in different departments to see which job he enjoyed the most followed by an intensive placement in his chosen department - Porter.
Kane excelled on his placement and was offered two days a week permanent paid employment.
Well done Kane!
Callum completed a successful voluntary placement with Age UK. He continues to work at Brazley Community Centre two days a week.
Callum uses his strength of communicating with others to talk to the clients. In addition, he demonstrated chair based exercises and is a regular bingo compere.
Keep up the excellent work Callum!
