Charlotte's Story Bubbly, imaginative and original. When Charlotte joined Skill Up in September 2016, she had these characteristics in abundance. What she needed was guidance to grow into an independent woman. Throughout the last year Charlotte has created her own goals around independent travel, meal preparation and daily activities. Through the support of the project, Charlotte is now an independent traveller around Harrow. “I now can travel from home to Harrow, I love having my freedom”. In addition to becoming an independent traveller, she has become far more confident in her life outside of Skill Up. Having developed her skills during our confidence workshops, Charlotte has become assertive and secured a work experience placement in a local café. This represented another box ticked and another step closer to reaching her goals. Charlotte has become a key figure in Skill Up and everyone adores her passion and enthusiasm for the project. She brings ideas and makes sure her voice is heard.
