Shafiq, 34, West Midlands, had served five years in and out of prison and struggled with basic language skills. He had always enjoyed driving, so completed a Fork Lift Truck course where he gained his licence. He was also supported by EOS with job searching, interview skills and English classes to improve his speech and subsequently completed a four-week placement before going on to work for a local warehouse.

Shafiq: “I’m very lucky and grateful to EOS for getting me back on track”
