We love great endings, and this is a great ending. After meeting regularly for just over a year, their mentoring relationship is now coming to a close. Vanessa (mentee) had just got her first home after being homeless for a time when we met her in autumn 2015. She was impressively determined and patient about sorting out her flat, recognising that it would take time to get it how she wanted. It has taken a whole year to get the white goods and she has never stopped working towards this. In the longer term she’d love to start her own business, but realises she needs income and experience in the short term. During the mentoring relationship, with help from her mentor, she secured voluntary work at a local hotel and having proved herself, is now moving into paid work. Determination pays off. The relationship will now come to an end, with the mentor still available at the end of the phone. A great outcome for everyone!
