The early days


A Working Life: The Early Days
 gives voice to the experiences of 18 people as they move into employment with support from Cork Simon.

It examines the participants motivations for working, the challenges they faced, the positives they found and the supports they valued in their early weeks of work.

A Working Life: The Early Days forms Part One of our Working Life research series.

Part Two reports on the participants’ continued journeys over 25 months. View Part Two: The Continuing Journey.
