“Without the help of yourself (Supported Employment Officer Heather Logan) and Disability Action, along with the support of the NHSCT Condition Management Programme, I would not be where I am today. I would not have the confidence to work to the highest of standards which I do!”

Marc Curtis is a Job Match participant who we supported to gain employment with Positive Futures in Cookstown towards the end of last year.  Six months on Mark now has two jobs: Learning Support Assistant with Clanrye Group - helping young adults with Learning Difficulties, and Supported Living Worker with Positive Futures in Cookstown - providing frontline support to vulnerable people with Cerebral Palsy, Acute Learning Difficulty and Challenging Behaviour.  Marc has been able to maintain both jobs during COVID-19. 

Getting a job, built my confidence and set a routine in my life. A reason to get up in the morning. To make a difference to peoples’ lives. To live each day to the best of my ability. To not take small things for granted. To be mindful and to strive and make a difference to someone everyday! I owe this all to you and the help I received during our time together.”
