From Corrimal, NSW, Workforce Australia client, Amy was experiencing many challenges in her family life. She was the victim of domestic violence and needed external support to help get her back on track.
Amy was connected with her Job Coach, Isabelle, who was able to provide her with tailored support they co-designed based on her goals and needs.
Isabelle referred Amy to atWork Australia’s Wellness Services for professional support including with her mental health.
Amy didn’t have reliable transport, so to help her on the way, Isabelle provided Amy with the financial support to book her Driver Knowledge Test. She also provided her with new interview clothes when the time came to meet with employers.
Amy was successful in securing a role as a production worker on a casual basis. Amy says she was “excited and shocked” that she made it past the interview stage as she was very nervous and doubting herself.
Isabelle is proud of the progress Amy made. She says, “I have seen Amy make a lot of progress; from the first time I met her at her appointment. I believe Amy starting a new job has given her hope in life and her confidence has grown.”
Amy is appreciative of the support she received from Isabelle. After being unemployed for almost a year, she is grateful to have an income to make things less stressful.
