Amit Koul

I served in Armed Forces for 8 years and when I left I struggled to find work. With no family in the UK, I didn’t have a place to stay and couldn’t rent anywhere without proof of employment.

Step Forward Foundation was recommended to me as they help service leavers struggling to adjust. They offered me a wealth of advice and support, provided me with a place to live and assisted with my CV and interview techniques.

The facilities at Leon House are very good, and there are always friendly staff I can talk to. They have helped me through some really tough situations and have helped me to build my confidence.

I am just awaiting the outcome of my latest interview and I am confident I will be starting a new job soon.

I can’t thank Step Forward enough for everything they have done to help me get back on my feet. I don’t know what would have happened to me if I hadn’t had their support.
