The job centre sent me at first. I did the 360 Journey to Work Life Skills course and came for a while to the breakfast drop in. It was very helpful. When I first got here I had no confidence at all because I had been out of work for a while but now I am volunteering for Shrewsbury Food Bank and two other places as well. I'm finding this is helpful in getting out of the house and meeting people. Other people have noticed I'm a lot more confident now. If someone was thinking of coming I would tell them to come, it's very good.

My Chapel became involved with donations to the Shrewsbury Foodbank, on my third visit delivering such donations I became aware of 360 Journey to work programme.
I am now retired after 45 years from my small business which my two sons continue to run.
I felt I needed to put back into life some of which I have been fortunate to take out, so I was extremely pleased when the opportunity presented itself to help people in any way return to work through 360 Journey to work.
To be able to help any person become fulfilled and respected through employment is a journey every business large or small should make.
Everyone deserves a chance and some may need more than one.

I first encountered 360 whilst at the food bank. I happened to mention to someone I needed to do a CV and was introduced to Karen, who invited me along. I found the whole experience enjoyable and interesting, and saw at first hand the people on the course with me gain confidence as the weeks progressed. To top it off I now have an outstanding CV. I recommend it to anyone from any walk of life who is seeking employment.

We are always very grateful for donations of money or food to make it possible for us to help people who are in crisis.
