  • Orbit’s employment and skills team helped Daniel to overcome a lack of confidence and social isolation by joining the local Art Society. Creating paintings alongside fellow artists has boosted Daniel’s confidence and enabled him to be much more connected in his community.


    "When I’m painting I feel happy, relaxed and I can be myself." - Daniel, Orbit customer, Stratford-upon-Avon












    After a difficult move to a women’s refuge, customer X struggled to get her life back on track. She found it difficult going for job interviews but knew she needed to pay the bills to support her family.


    “I was in the job centre and I saw Orbit’s employment leaflet and thought what have I got to lose?” So she met her employment support coach (ESC) but wasn’t confident, “I’d lost my identity and my family and friends. I told her I couldn’t do it but her motivation was infectious and her encouragement spurred me on.”

    I have eight years’ experience in helping people into work, training and volunteering on various Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) contracts, previous to that I was a mortgage advisor for 8 years. In my area I offer one-to-one support to help people move into paid employment, volunteering and or training. I have access to Orbit grants, which can be used to help our customers move forward and overcome their barriers to getting back into work. A job club is also run in Hastings on Monday mornings. Happy to have informal chats to discuss how I can help.
