I like making new friends and learning new skills. Waverley Social Enterprise has given me the chance and are supporting me in my apprenticeship in Commercial Cookery. I feel really good that I am learning and contributing.

I like working at Waverley Social Enterprise as I have made good friends. I like the jobs and the staff are friendly and supportive.

I like the jobs that I do at Waverley Social Enterprise, especially William Adams where I have to cut tubes. I have lots of friends here and I love coming to work everyday. The support staff are always nice to me and they treat me well. My husband also works here but we are in different groups.
