Helen was unemployed for more than two years before receiving support from ROAD.

Navigators and trainers from across the programme worked with her to improve her confidence and self-esteem through one-to-one support, as well as specialist courses.

To help Helen move closer to her ambition of working in the health and fitness sector, ROAD found a volunteering opportunity with an organisation running healthy eating courses. After attending for a few weeks, she joined the team and began planning and delivering her own sessions!

This proved to her she had the ability to lead a class, and gave her the confidence to complete a fitness instructor qualification, meaning she is now ready to enter an industry for which she has a passion.
