A wonderful story from a young lad met in custody: “I had no idea what DIVERT was. I was offered support in a moment of helplessness during an arrest. I had no exceptions. Billy, walked into the police cell I was held in and a weight was simply lifted off my shoulders instantaneously, I burst out into tears. Someone cared without any shame or expectations. I wanted out of the system. I wanted help. Since that moment, Billy’s constantly made efforts to help me get my life back on track. More so, where I want my life to be. I’ve managed to enrol onto a voluntary advice program which is now helping me to not only understand myself, but restore the same favour back into society.”

Candidates did the serious stuff getting prepared for jobs and interviews with a bit of fun with some interesting, interactive exercises. As ever amazing feedback and a few more candidates feeling more confident about entering employment.
