Testimonials

It’s been a fantastic opportunity to really help to make a difference to people’s lives. The staff are remarkable and really do care about the clients that they support. Watching people grow and develop in confidence and the tenacity shown by everyone to help clients achieve their dreams and aspirations says it all. They are an inspiration and leave no stone unturned to help bring about change. It may only be a small charity but it’s got a big heart.

Janine

I started to work for SHAP in April 2018 and I can honestly say that it is a breath of fresh air to work with so many hardworking dedicated people. I have seen with my own eyes how they go the extra distance in helping homeless people sustain their tenancy. They give lots of support and offer alternative ways to be able to do this. I am enjoying my job and learning new skills working in this environment and with multi agency approaches.

Kevin

Having worked for SHAP for nearly 30 years says it all.

Marg

I have worked for SHAP for 17 years on various schemes and I can say with all honesty no two days are ever the same and very rarely go as planned. I have worked with wonderful colleagues over the years, many who have become as close as family to me and we have shared the successes and the failures. The young people I have worked with over the years never fail to inspire me with how they attempt to get on with their lives despite having had difficult backgrounds and supporting them is what makes this job worth while.

Since joining the Changes project I have been welcomed by my colleagues in the Dovecot office and the Lakeside offices. I have enjoyed helping and assisting clients with welfare and debt issues trying to overcome any barriers which are facing them, challenging decisions on their behalf from initial benefit checks form filling to appeal process tribunals to make sure they are supported throughout the process of maximising their benefits and maintaining their independence. We work in partnership with Merseyide Law Centre to provide a welfare benefits service to the local and wider communities on Merseyside looking for solutions to their needs. We are flexible and responsive to people’s needs, supporting clients with their issues, working as a team, being professional and honest, focusing on clients, being committed to SHAP and our colleagues to combine all our abilities and skills and experience to make the Changes project a success in the community.

John

SHAP have given me the opportunity to work in the community in which I live ensuring our young people are empowered to make informed decisions and take control of their own lives. I have been supported by SHAP to develop and build positive professional relationships with colleagues, partner agencies and young people. I look forward to continuing to make positive contributions to our community though the work I do with SHAP.
