Celebrating 25 years of Changing Lives and Creating Futures!

 

Landau started life as a supported employment service set up by the county council for day centre users but, backed by government funding and the newly-formed National Lottery, it became a charity and began helping people into work.

 

To mark 25 years it has issued a book featuring some of the people it has helped including 27-year-old Daniel Noon.

 

Mr Noon, who has Asperger’s syndrome, “struggled quite a bit” in mainstream education, he said, and was not sure what he would do afterwards.

 

His passion was for public transport, an interest sparked by his father’s job as an engineer for the former British Rail.

 

Following a Skills for Life course at Walsall College, he joined a Landau study programme covering areas such as numeracy, literacy, teamwork and work experience but then he found his “dream job”.

A weekly placement with Network Rail led to impressed bosses offering him a permanent job helping passengers navigate Birmingham’s New Street Station.

 

“I always wanted to work with public transport and with trains and where they operate,” he said adding he rarely needs his work tablet such is his knowledge of routes and of New Street, the busiest interchange station in Britain.

 

“I enjoy helping people. I’m a people person,” he said.

Landau is incredibly proud of the work it has done helping thousands of individuals like Daniel, to read more click here! 

 

 

 

Princess Anne Visits Landau

The Princess recently unveiled a plaque to mark Landau’s 25th anniversary of helping thousands of people across the West Midlands.

On arrival at the Marches Marches Construction Ready Partnership Training Hub in Trench, the Princess was met by the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Shropshire, Jenny Wynn, who introduced her to chief executive Sonia Roberts.

Among the students she spoke to was 31-year-old army veteran Teri Elder, who suffered from depression and homelessness after leaving the forces, but now runs her own business offering support to people going through similar problems.

Teri, who lives in Staffordshire, said she was nervous but very excited to meet the Princess.

“She asked me what I did, and I told her that I walk and talk with people about their problems, and what they would like to do, and how they could take action,” she said.

The charity works with some of the most vulnerable in society, including veterans, those with learning disabilities and looked-after children.

Mrs Roberts said: “We were absolutely delighted to host The Princess Royal here today and for her to hear the inspiring stories of some of the 3,000 plus young people and adults we support.”
