Working with Cyfle Cymru came at just the right time for Conor. He struggled over the years, balancing living with Asperger’s whilst recovering from a difficult period of depression.
Conor is very outgoing and sociable which meant he struggled to cope when he became socially isolated. He said, “It’s great having that support and confidence that coming to Cyfle Cymru gives you. The staff always notice if you’re feeling down. It’s amazing having the social interaction after feeling isolated and depressed”.
Conor is extremely keen to work in the hospitality industry and has been working hard attending courses and applying for work placements during his time with Cyfle. He has said, “I’m nervous about the thought of starting work again. But I like working hard and I know my confidence will improve even more once I start working”.
