Before getting involved with the Skill Up project, Priyanka had not really engaged with any services since leaving college in 2011 and had lost touch with many of her friends.  Her mood and motivation was very low, and she had lost a lot of skills and confidence since her college days.  Both Priyanka and her mum hoped coming to Skill Up would help her to regain her self confidence, make new friends and learn to travel more independently.

"Ever since I joined Harrow Mencap and started coming along to Skill Up I have found happiness and made new friends.  Priyanka has grown in confidence over the last two years and now has two part time paid jobs as an Office Admin and as a GP Rep delivering training to health care professionals. She says "Having two new part time jobs at Harrow Mencap is just incredible"

Priyanka has made lots of new friends and this is really important to her "Harrow Mencap is my happy place where I can be my crazy self and be who I am around friends and the people who I love"
