Fahanara, Street League graduate
Fahanara is a Street League graduate who gained a qualification and got a job in the care sector. However a few years down the line, she decided she wanted a change and wasn't sure how to go about it.
During the first lockdown, Street League staff got back in touch and helped her to get her career back on track. She liked the idea of still working with and helping people, but she wanted to move into a sector which involved children.
Fahanara reengaged with our employability sessions which refreshed her knowledge about equality, diversity, and wellbeing. Along with enjoying taking part in the dance, fitness and yoga sessions which helped her to establish a routine and keep her fitness levels up.
“I have found Street League very useful in different ways for example dance. I love dancing it isn’t about being perfect and getting it right, it’s about expressing yourself and what makes you happy. The fitness sessions helped to build my strength and made my body more active. Most importantly, I have enjoyed yoga because it makes your body feel relaxed and stress free. Glad I signed up for the course as it’s something to do at home before starting employment.”

Whilst Fahanara was exploring employment options in a difficult climate, where job opportunities are so low we explored other options and decided she should do a course that would help her move into the childcare sector.
She joined Level 2 online ‘Safeguarding and Prevent’, something essential when working with children. Fahanara now is able demonstrate that she continued to work towards her goals and gained vital knowledge about keeping children safe. Since completing the course, Fahanara has found employment which has helped support her living costs.
