Hear From Our Participants

“I would highly recommend the New Steps and New Futures Employability Programmes to any Single Parent who is thinking of going on to further Education or thinking of pursuing a career. I am delighted to have gotten to experience both courses.”

The New Steps programme was a god send! I learned how to deal with so many different emotions I was struggling with and instead of letting them get on top of me I learned new strategies to cope with them and not let them weigh me down. I also learned to look at life from a different perspective.
