I was put in touch with Clean Break through the probation service to take me out of a bad environment.
I found Clean Break in lockdown, so I started on Zoom by joining groups of drama, singing, poetry. Whatever they had, I said ‘I’ll give it a go’. Since joining Clean Break, I’m enjoying meeting new people. All people with different needs who have been through different things. I enjoy hearing from others in the group and maybe you don’t know them, but you get used to seeing them and being with them on Zoom.
I’m also enjoying the opportunity to learn new skills. I’m learning things which before, I might have found a struggle. With this, I feel my confidence getting better, I feel more comfortable speaking.
I’m honest with the Clean Break team and I say I have learning difficulties and that I might struggle, but they are always there to support you. I want to thank them for helping me to come into the group. Clean Break gives you an opportunity to join in, it’s helped me to get away from trouble and given me the support I need to get my confidence back.
Please stand with Clean Break to help us reach and support more women like Jasmine on their journey from surviving to thriving. Every £1 donated through the Big Give Christmas Challenge from 30 November to 7 December will be doubled. That means one donation, twice the impact.
