Stacey came to St Giles in July 2021 having faced significant challenges in her life. She wanted to use her experience to help others facing similar difficulties and show how their past could be turned into a positive future.
Becoming a mother was a pivotal moment that empowered Stacey into creating a new life for herself and her son.
Stacey’s kind and caring nature has seen her support many individuals throughout her life, and she saw this as her time to get some formal qualifications. She completed the Learning to Advise course, NVQ Level 3 in Advice and Guidance and was volunteering in the North Wales Peer Hub.
With funding from Communities for Work, her son has been able to attend nursery for the first time. This is paramount for him having been born throughout the pandemic and he has thrived and gained much-needed social skills.
Stacey has now been accepted onto a paid role as a Peer Consultant on the EPOP (Engaging People on Probation) project and is very excited for her future.
