Testimonial from Emma
I was with Next Step from the age of 15. Julian was my keyworker. I went from my residential unit to a Next Step flat in Catford. Julian was a fantastic keyworker who help me through a lot of difficulties I was having in my relationship with my social worker.
I learnt a lot of independence skills from Julian, including budgeting for my bills, cooking skills and shopping efficiently.
Many years have passed and I'm still in contact with him and all of Next Step, and feel that if I ever have a problem I need help with I can still approach him and Next Step for support.
I am now training to become a PCSO and ultimately to become a Police Officer.
