I joined PATH Yorkshire’s ‘SECOND CHANCE’ Project. Through the project, I completed the 2 courses, access counselling and one-to-one support. At the beginning, an Action Plan was agreed between me and my PATH Adviser with specifics of what I am hoping to achieve through the Second Chance project, these serves as my goals. One-to-one sessions with my PATH Adviser helped me to think of my achievements and progress which is measured with my goals.
