BBO Bridges Case Study: Small steps lead to progress

Lawrence joined the BBO Bridges project in September 2021 after struggling with long-term unemployment for nearly 4 years.

He had been suffering from depression and mental health issues as a result of a nervous breakdown. As a consequence, he had lost his self-confidence over time and he needed someone to encourage him to make a positive change in his life.

Despite all of this, he showed keen interest in taking a new leaf in life and he attended our meetings and group activities on regular basis. Our top priority while working with him has been to improve his confidence and polish his skills with the support of our proficient BBO officer. He would engage with other participants and do different activities.

In April 2022, Lawrence successfully gained an apprenticeship as a Warehouse Apprentice at a food bank, and he is happy with his progress and personal development.

We are all very proud of Lawrence and wish him all the best!
