Working with HACRO has helped build my confidence. The projects are a great way to build up self esteem and learn how to work as part of a team. If I never had the projects run by HACRO I’d feel lost.

I came out of prison in August 2015. I’ve worked with Tony from HACRO since my release. Working on projects has boosted my self esteem and I have gained valuable knowledge from working alongside Tony.

I was released from jail onto C2 where I was introduced to HACRO at the IOM projects. Whilst here Tony helped me with getting a job with Blue Sky.He was a massive help with getting a job and keeping me on the straight and narrow.
