Andrea Volunteers at Midland Air Ambulance

We would like to say a BIG well done to Andrea, who lives at Elmwood on securing a volunteer position at Midland Air Ambulance.

Susan Williams, Andrea’s key worker at Elmwood has helped her approach different companies in the local community to secure a position.

Hannah tells us “She has been through the experience of most people, facing rejection when job hunting, however it only made her more determined. This is another goal achieved by Andrea to help her gain her independence and we are so proud of her!!”

Susan has also been helping Andrea to improve her reading and writing skills, which she adds came in very handy when applying to different jobs as well as using these skills in her new role!

Keep smashing your goals’ Andrea and enjoy your new position!
