One of my other young people….had spent very little time socialising with other young people her own age and had been experiencing great difficulty with self-harm and suicide. She was barely attending education and the only thing she said would keep her alive would be to have a baby. The pathway of NCS was identified as a positive way forward, halfway through the programme, I met with her and she was literally a new person, full of confidence, positivity and smiling for the first time in a long time. She completed the programme with great praise from all around her and has now started college! This I must add was not easy as her first choice of course had not accepted her due to her grades, but instead of quitting at the first hurdle (which she would have done previously) she went to various different colleges until she found the one that was right and is finally starting to live!”
