"E4S program has been very beneficial to the groups. All participants gave positive feedback and I have started to see some very good outcomes with particular individuals in terms of improved confidence and more positive attitude, more self- belief is evident. Some of the participants have already found work and some have applied for vocational training.There is more positivity about future prospects and more focused goal setting. Overall the program helped us all to assess and reflect on our personal barriers, physically and psychologically as well as what is holding us back in both our professional and personal lives. It gave us the tools and techniques to help us overcome these barriers to lead more successful and fulfilling lives".
