Sam has learning difficulties and severe anxiety. When he joined KeyRing we asked him about what he wanted to achieve and he told us that he wanted to find a job. His goal was to save enough money to put down a deposit for a new flat for himself and his family, but he was worried about how employment would affect his Universal Credit.
We worked with Sam to help him understand his finances and he realised that he would be better off if he was working. With this assurance Sam felt confident to first get a part time job as a cleaner at a local caravan park, then additional part time job in a local pub.
Sam is really enjoying working and being financially secure. His next goal is to move into full time employment.
