With the support of the Forwards Employment Team, Timothy has secured a placement with the Prince’s Trust to start his own Dog Photography Business. In addition to this, the team supported Timothy to secure a voluntary placement with Cheltenham Animal Shelter where he has been able to develop skills caring for the animals, working alongside the animal behaviour therapist and carrying out photography to help secure new homes for the dogs at the shelter. Timothy has had a very successful placement and is well on his way to reaching his ambition of running his own business. The Forwards Employment Team will continue to support Timothy throughout his work to ensure he is able to continue working within a sustainable and rewarding career.
“The Forwards Employment service has offered me the opportunities and support that has really helped me grow and mature. I now have the confidence to push forward with my chosen career and have gained useful contacts for the future.” Timothy Bridge.
