GROWGetting Real Opportunities of Work

‘I wanted something that used my negative life experiences for positive change. That’s why I became an ICM GROW trainee

‘I was fearful – but received a lot of support throughout the traineeship. My confidence has grown along with my knowledge and I know that I am making a real difference to people that were like me; judged for their history not their potential’ Colette (GROW Trainee)
