Key2Support Employment Case Study

Karen B’s Story

Karen joined Key2support in December 2018 through a work trial we ran in partnership with Burnley job centre.

Karen was unemployed at the time and was claiming benefits as a lone parent.

Karen completed the trial of 4 weeks while still in receipt of her benefits. Karen was offered a position at the end of her trial which she gladly accepted.

“Starting back into work has given me more confidence within myself and more opportunities with earning, I can spend more time making memories with my children.

The transition from universal credit to work, worked well for me although I did a month in hand my UC money covered my outgoings until receiving my first wage. It works well also as your wage earnings are deducted from your UC so you feel extra income immediately from working.

I enjoy getting out meeting new people, hearing new stories, learning something new everyday, helping people live happy independent life’s. Above all I enjoy seeing people smile, it makes you feel appreciated knowing they are happy and comfortable.

“I have found working for Key2Support as an enjoyable experience, they are always happy to help. It works well around your family commitments, a really understanding company who work hard to try and meet your needs.”
