Lots of exciting news from me! 💥

Firstly, I completed and passed my course! I found the last module really rough if I'm being honest so was surprised and delighted to discover I got through it. I'm now continuing to work part-time with the NHS 2 days a week. I'm enjoying the painting side of things and getting really good feedback on this so far 🖌️

I've also - after months of persevering - managed to move into permanent social housing. It's my own flat and I feel so pleased as I begin to turn it from a shell into my own home 🏠

I need to go into hospital for a short operation, after which I plan to start working full-time and moving on with the rest of my life.

An absolutely massive thank you to all those who supported me. It's genuinely given me the confidence and belief to take all these steps in my life over the last year. I can't believe how much it's changed.

William.

With my final project feeling chuffed to bits!

Hi all,

So sorry for taking so long to give you an update - I have been so rushed off my feet since you all so kindly supported my campaign! 🏃

Firstly, I passed my plumbing and tiling course. 😁

I am still doing my carpentry course. I am finding this one more challenging but when I pass that course I will receive my Diploma. I am also doing some painting and decorating for the NHS and volunteering alongside a handyman to help me to gain experience.

Thank you so much for your help!

Doing my volunteer work

Hi!

I have a new role volunteering for the NHS maintenance department 🎉

I will be working alongside plumbers, carpenters, electricians and handymen. This is a great opportunity for me to gain experience within my chosen career path. I had a great interview with the manager so all is moving in the right direction.

William has now passed two modules of his handyman training and has one left to go 🎉 He's enjoying the course and wants to share this photo of his tiling training with Beam supporters. Anyone looking for a new kitchen in the next few months...?! 🔧

Tiling training!
