Charlotte is currently really blossoming, thanks to the work of Annie, Focused Intervention Youthworker (Education, Employment and Training).

When Annie first met Charlotte, she was a little unsure what they wanted to do and which direction to go in. Annie has been working with her over the past couple of months helping to build her self-esteem, self-confidence and encouraging her to believe in herself.

Charlotte has had support to develop her C.V. and think about what sort of job she might be suitable for. Annie then helped with job hunting and they went out together dropping Charlotte’s C.V. around town.

Working with Annie means Charlotte has become more confident in her own abilities – she now believes in herself, and therefore can ‘sell herself’ to potential employers.

Recently Charlotte has decided which career path she wants to pursue, and has managed to secure a work placement. Even more fantastic is the news that Charlotte has just accepted a part-time job at a local supermarket.

It has been such a great pleasure to work with such a wonderful young person.



Covid-19 has caused panic and fear across the world. For some of the young people and families supported by The Door, their fragile mental health status prior to Covid-19 is being exacerbated in the current climate; many are feeling out of control and more anxious about their lives.

While we are seeing demand for our services grow we are also losing £500 every working day in income as a result of lockdown. Please donate today to help The Door reach every young person and family that needs our support, especially at this most challenging of times.

If you are a new donor, The Door will receive match funding on donations over £500 (more details on our website)
