Craig (25) came to live at Bosco Lodge in August, after experiencing some housing problems, but has already thrown himself into a range of activities and courses on offer at Bosco.
He has engaged well with his key-worker, Alison, and, after just a couple of months, he has attended (and, in some cases completed) courses on:
- Creative Writing
- IT for beginners
- Renting Ready (pre-tenancy training)
- Cooking on a Budget
- First Aid
- A taster course in tiling
- Music production
- Homeless football league
- Accesses additional support from Talent Match with Merseyside Youth Association.
As a reward for his hard work and commitment, the Bosco Society is paying the £40 fee for Craig’s 10-week construction/DIY course at Hugh Baird College.
Alison said: “Craig has been a pleasure to work with. He is a very committed young man and should he continue with this level of motivation he will go a long way in life.”
Craig said “Since moving into Bosco Lodge there have been many opportunities for me to develop, and to use my time in a positive manner. I am very grateful that Bosco has funded the construction course for me and I will try and build upon (no pun intended!) the skills I have learned so far.”
“After experiencing some housing and personal issues, I can now see light at the end of the tunnel. I would like to say a big thank you to Bosco staff for showing faith in me.”
Craig has embraced the Bosco Society ethos and has worked very hard to achieve what he has so far and deserves recognition for his enthusiasm and commitment.
Well done Craig!
