Destined for the dole?

One of the subjects Michelle feels passionately about is helping the unemployed return to work, or gain first time employment.  Lack of confidence and self esteem are issues Michelle helps people combat both with her ‘Anything is Possible’ seminars and her work with government, return to work agencies and her independent consultancy work.

Today, Michelle spoke to 22 regional news outlets about a new Prince’s Trust report entitled ‘Destined For The Dole’ which outlines how one in five young people expect that they will end up on the dole. Often, this is because their parents and peer groups are on it.  Michelle was also interviewed on Sky News by Dermot Murnaghan on the subject today. Read the full report, here.
