Sam's success

A young man from Ulverston has described how the Building Better Opportunities Getting Cumbria to Work (BBO GCtW) project has completely changed his outlook on life and working.
Sam Huck, 23, has a diagnosis of autism and also has a long-term medical condition.
He described how this sometimes made him struggle with the routine demands of life and how his medical condition meant he would wake up on some mornings feeling anxious.

He obtained NVQs in Site Joinery and Bench Joinery at Furness College but a subsequent apprenticeship with a firm did not work out.
He had a variety of short-term jobs but said
he did not want to commit to a career.
"I just wanted to give up on joinery and a lot of people thought it was a waste of an opportunity because they saw great potential in me," said Sam.

Read more about BBO GCtW  helped give Sam the confidence he needed to change his working life and his outlook on life - in the case study below.
