Stephen Lavery

Steve attends Bury EST two days a week to work on his confidence, independence and employability skills with the ultimate aim to find paid employment. He has worked in all areas of the park and particularly enjoys working in the bike hub with James one of our support workers, where they carry out bike maintenance and refurbish second hand bikes. Steve has undertaken a couple of work experience placements whilst at Bury EST one at Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust and more recently at Re-Build Bury.

Here is what Steve had to say about his Pennine Care placement:

"I am so grateful to Pennine Care for giving me the opportunity to do this placement and gain knowledge of what a work atmosphere is like. As each week passed I really started to grow in confidence doing jobs for them and I felt good knowing I could help."

"Picturing my life 12 months ago I did not think I would have ever got this opportunity. It just proves that there are lovely people out there willing to give me a chance and I will be forever grateful".
