“When I left College, I wasn’t sure what to do next. I had always wanted to be a bus or train driver, but I couldn’t drive and I didn’t think this career was an option for me.
I found DFN Project SEARCH at Whipps Cross Hospital and was thrilled to be accepted onto the scheme as I thought it would give me useful skills and help me work out my next steps.
This was an excellent decision and over the course of the programme, I learnt to drive and I was over the moon when I passed my driving test! I still kept my dream of becoming a bus driver and on Saturday mornings, I would often visit the bus depot close to where I live and speak to the drivers.
If it wasn’t for DFN Project SEARCH, I don’t think I would have had the confidence to speak to them and ask them about their job.”
