With a strong desire to be independent, he sought our help in finding employment to support himself and achieve his goals.
Like many young people, Eadrict faced several barriers to employment. Travelling to and from the college was very expensive and he stuggled to balance his part-time job and his studies . Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic further complicated this situation by leaving him unemployed when his workplace closed down. However, Eadrict remained determined to find a job and work towards his long-term goals.
