"Having someone to talk to, offer you advice and believe in you can make all the difference."

"I trust my mentor and he respects me. He’s done more for me than anyone. He’s given me my soul back."

"I’m desperate to sort my life out and Sova is the place I come to when I need to tackle my issues or just think about something else. It has been a huge help to me. "

"I now have a job that I love, a great relationship, a home, some money in my pocket and most importantly, I have a future."

"Sova can’t sort your problems out for you but they can give you the initiative - a way out. It’s like they shout up and say ‘this way mate’ pointing you in the right direction."

"I had no idea my life could be so different in less than a year. I didn’t have a CV back then, now it’s full of qualifications and experience."

"Now I’m taking each day as it comes and I try not to think too much about the future but I do believe I have one."

"I’ll do everything I can to keep my life on track but if things get difficult again, I know I won’t go back to how I was before."

"I made a mistake, but Sova took a gamble on me and gave me my life back. This is my last chance and I’m going to prove that their gamble has paid off."

"With Sova’s support I’ve been able to turn a bad experience into an opportunity to take a new direction in life."
