Employment Support Worker at Toucan Employment

Aoife points out that success comes in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes just getting out of bed is tough.

If these little victories go unpraised, it deflates self-esteem, making the idea of finding a job even more intimidating. “The older people around you stop acknowledging all the things that, for someone struggling in life, are actually real achievements.”
