Some of the stories and experiences from young people who have been helped by DurhamWorks.
21 year old Ailish didn’t feel that she had the experience or confidence to find a job. DurhamWorks partners Jack Drum Arts have seen her confidence grow working on theatre and film projects, and she’s learning a range of new skills on a week-long residential stay, which she’ll be able to transfer into the world of work.MORE

I have really enjoyed the experience and feel that I have more confidence and future.
I feel like the DurhamWorks programme is about young people. They genuinely care about getting you a job that you enjoy.
Working with DurhamWorks gave me the confidence boost I needed to just go for it and it’s turned out to be a great match for me and my health condition.
I wasn’t in a good place, but now I have an idea of what I want to do in the future.
The DurhamWorks funded apprenticeship is great for me to learn in a practical way.
