My vision...to make something of myself. Previously a prison officer for many years then I was diagnosed with generalised anxiety disorder, which unfortunately forced me to leave the role. At the age of 34 I want to work for myself, set up alone and build a solid future for myself. Unfortunately having the available resources to chase my dream and purchase a fully equipped van is proving to be challenging. In the future, I would like to grow the company and be able to offer people employment and develop them as person and offer them a skill set, so they are also able to do well in their own life. I would like to assist ex-offenders wether it be provide them with a job short term to teach them trade and then allow them to set their own business venture up, or when the business grows and expands, employ ex offenders and offer them long term employment. Everybody deserves a chance to change their life. All we need is the opportunity. By raising £5000, this will allow me to purchase a fully equipped van and start laying the foundations to change my own life and contribute to changing others in the future.
