Soren's Story

After being out of work for two years due to anxiety and depression, Soren joined the Action Towards Inclusion project with Autism Plus in North Yorkshire, with the goal of overcoming her mental health challenges and securing new paid employment. Once in employment, at a local holiday park, she transferred to the Thriving at Work project where she continued to grow in confidence with the support from our team. Soren was able to develop the necessary skills to maintain her new employment and now has weekly support with Autism Plus, Access to Work. Access to Work has helped Soren to maintain her employment and is supporting her future career goals.

Soren’s hard work and dedication paid off, and her manager, Ange, was pleased with her progress. She was progressed to cleaning owner’s caravans, which demonstrated the level of trust placed in her. Ange observed a significant improvement in Soren’s cleaning time and productivity since she began her job. Soren was independent but not hesitant to ask for help when needed.

If it wasn’t for you coming to see me every week, I would have given up a long time ago.


Soren’s success story highlights the importance of personalised support that caters to the specific needs of individuals with disabilities. We were able to assist Soren in effectively communicating her needs to her manager, which resulted in more effective support. Soren told us: “a little support can go a long way.”

We are extremely proud of Soren and her accomplishments. Her story is an inspiration to others, demonstrating that with the right support, individuals can achieve their full potential and thrive in the workplace.
