Unemployed and with no hope Jayde now has a job she loves and has a future in - after support from The Prince’s Trust and Cornerstone.
Jayde, 24, from Glasgow had dropped out of college to look after her son but afterwards began to suffer from depression and anxiety.
Her mental health and the fact she struggled with reading and writing, prevented Jayde from getting back into work and she began to suffer even more as she lost any confidence in herself when it came to filling out applications or writing her CV.
But when she saw the post on Facebook advertising The Prince’s Trust’s Get into Health and Social Care with Cornerstone, the simple and easy way to apply appealed to her so she decided to give it a go.
Jayde was successful in securing a place and she excelled during the course, coming out of her shell, building her confidence, and meeting new friends.
She said: “After having my son, I became depressed and had anxiety. It got so bad I ended up having to go to the doctors to get medication. All of the things that come so easy to others I was struggling so bad with - it was a difficult time.
“I saw the add on Facebook and it made it so easy for me to apply with no application forms or anything, so I thought why not let’s see what happens.
After completing the programme Jayde applied on her own for a job with Cornerstone and was successful.
She currently works relief shifts and is loving every minute of it. She now plans to stay at Cornerstone and build a career in the sector.
Jayde added: “I will forever be grateful for all the help and support The Prince’s Trust has given me. I cannot believe it I am a care worker now!"
