Kathy's story

Meet Kathy! PreEmploy (PEI) helped me to build my confidence up. I had no confidence and no self-esteem. I was a loner and a couch potato.

"PreEmploy (PEI) helped me to build my confidence up. I had no confidence and no self-esteem. I was a loner and a couch potato.

The encouragement I got from PreEmploy was fantastic! Now I am a Peer Support Worker and Mentor. I love my job supporting the employees at Prestige Packing; I feel I learn as much off them as they do off me.”

PreEmploy (PEI) is an employment preparation course for people on a disability support Pension (DSP) living with mental health issues. The objective of PEI is to provide people with the skills and confidence they need to enter open employment.
