“I joined the BBO Bridges project at Summit Suppot in January 2017. The last time I worked was 25 years ago, I couldn’t imagine that anyone would want me. As someone who lives with a diagnosed mental health condition I feared the conversation at interview, even if I got that far. I have been on ESA and its previous incarnations but always felt that in times that my mental health was in a good place that I could work. I have volunteered for a few years, that was easier as the expectations were less and I could choose to stay at home if things got more difficult. At Summit House I joined the Directions group, getting used to meeting other people, and updated my CV with my volunteering knowledge. I applied for a part-time reception post at the charity I volunteered for and got an interview. Darren at Summit Support coached me through some interview techniques and I felt confident going into the interview. What was there to lose? I had self-belief!! Guess what…I got the job!”

“The service offered has been invaluable in terms of my recovery, self-esteem and confidence.”

“I’d like to say a really big thank you for all the support Summit Support have given me over the past 3 years… I really wouldn’t have got this far if it wasn’t for this help. I was not it a very good place when I started coming here… (now) everything has started come together for me again, the last piece of the puzzle was to get back into to work.”
