Rain referred herself to More Positive Together because she had become socially isolated, demotivated and lacking in confidence. Rain has a long term illness and her condition has meant that she has not been able to work for a period of time. She has a very positive outlook on life and wanted to try new things. She knew that she has more treatment to follow, but did not want that to stop her improving herself. Rain wanted to re-engage with people and access social opportunities to re build her confidence, which would help her to be back to an employable standard in her mind. She also wanted to improve all aspects of her wellbeing and try new things.

Rain says:  ‘Together, we worked on improving a number of different areas of my life including health and wellbeing, employment opportunities, financial issues, and mental health. Some of the benefits I received whilst being a participant on the More Positive Together programme were:

 It has helped me immensely. With Leon’s support, I have achieved far more measurable results than I would have managed to achieve on my own.’
