Molly’s story

Molly was introduced to Local Area Coordinator Tina by a statutory service. They agreed to meet up over a tea and milkshake. As they got to know each other, it became clear to Tina that Molly was really benefiting from just chatting and talking through ideas.

As Molly says they ‘just clicked’, and she found her time with Tina something positive to look forward to. At one point in their relationship Molly, who is a young carer for her mum and family, shared that she didn’t get on well at school.

Over time they explored career options that could work around Molly’s family commitments and also help make some time for herself. They found a place on a course and Molly went on to win student of the month and gain qualifications. She has made new friends and found a career in something she enjoys.

Molly comments ‘I never thought I’d be where I am today […] I feel like I have blossomed since meeting Tina and have found a new confidence in myself […] with new relationships and friendships […]I’ve put myself out there and found who Molly is again’. Brilliant!
