“The Prince’s Trust helped me find myself,” said Kieran Shone who completed a Prince’s Trust Team programme in November 2020.
Kieran’s favourite part of the programme was the two-week’s work experience at Excel Food Bank in Bilston where he was responsible for packaging food and helping with deliveries to families in need. In fact, he enjoyed it so much that he often stayed past his allocated hours to help out and, once his placement finished, he continued to go along every morning to help staff in the centre prepare food parcels.
Kieran added: “At the start of the course I was really worried about what I was going to do but the Prince’s Trust staff were there for me 100% if I needed help or advice with anything.
“I really enjoyed the course, my confidence and mental well-being improved and I’m now on a Kickstart programme working as a teaching assistant in a primary school.”
