Success stories

Click on the stories below to see just how successful our young people have been, thanks to the Symud Ymlaen / Moving Forward Initiative!


Toni takes on the Little Monkeys.

Toni was referred to the SYMF project by the Youth Offending team, having been in trouble as part of a group of friends know for their
antisocial behaviour.

Easily distracted and led by her peers, Toni was a bright and able girl who wanted to work in childcare, but was naturally concerned that
her previous involvement with the youth offending team would be a barrier to her chosen career.

After working with the CBSA team, she started a placement with Little Monkeys Nursery in Swansea, but found the experience emotionally overwhelming. This, compounded by personal issues meant that Toni was not able to continue with the work placement, and needed some time away.
