Emma is a homemaker and mother of three, and has brought up her children as a single mum for the last 12 years.
During this time, she has undertaken some temporary work – but has also suffered from depression, though this has not stopped her from running the home and organising her children’s daily activities.
She came to Cyfle Cymru for help to find employment and to boost her confidence. Emma has made improvements to her CV, and her confidence has grown steadily throughout. She has completed a number non-accredited skills exercises, plus barista training and customer services courses.
Emma has been volunteering at Tyfu Café in Caerphilly since a ‘taster day’ in November. She is enjoying every minute and is looking forward to completing food hygiene, health and safety, first aid and manual handling qualifications.
Emma says her confidence has improved and she is now looking forward to the future and finding paid employment.
