Testimonial – Natasha (Supported Employment (Work Choice) Participant)

“My time at Landau has really helped me, I was really scared of the thought of getting back into work. When I started Landau I was really nervous and I didn’t want to go, but I am happy I did because now, I have a job in a care home. They helped me gain confidence for my interview, everyone at Landau is really nice, they helped and supported me. I feel more confident and happy to start my job and it’s nice to know that Landau will be still supporting me whilst at work. Everyone made me comfortable and they all helped when I got nervous. Thank you so much for your help.”
