Rachael's Gap story
Rachael spent a long time unemployed, which led her to worrying about what the future might hold. Thankfully after a visit with her work coach, she found a direction.
"I'd been unemployed for a long time and was uncertain of what the future held for me. That all changed when my work coach recommended The Prince's Trust.
"I took part in a programme with Gap at The Prince’s Trust in Newcastle. The course was designed to support young people like me boost our skills and experience to start a career in retail, and that’s what I did!
"Everyone at Gap made us feel so welcome and like we were at home. The whole experience has built my confidence massively, it's improved my customer service skills and I feel much more positive.
"I’ve also made so many friends. Being at Gap Dalton Park is honestly like being part of a family and I love it. The Prince’s Trust really did help me transform my life and I now have a career at Gap and a future I’m looking forward to!
