Meet Scott

“I’m empowered to make decisions and try new approaches because YFS focuses on future growth and sustainability. The organisation’s values and mission statement inspires me to evolve and review the work I do every day. Equally, I don’t feel isolated in the work I do. There has always been someone to talk things through with.”

Meet Rachel

“I’ve been working here for almost six years and at every stage, YFS has supported me to explore my passions and try out various positions. I started as a crisis worker and once joined the domestic violence team as a partner advocate and court support worker. Right now, I manage an employment preparation program. I have to say it’s all due to my line managers, who have helped me identify my career goals and find the best pathways for me, be they formal training, studies, work shadowing or peer support.”
