Personal Stories

Stories & experiences of Workfare

  1. i suffer from severe anxiety, especially when around crowds of people & feel this placement is completely inappropriate for me given the state im in right now. my work advisor doesn't care & keeps sending me to placements that make my anxiety worse & the places i'm sent to put my in positions that bring out the worst of it.i need help with my anxiety which i'm not getting any help with & not been sent to placements that make the situation worse for me.i explained my issues to the st vincents people & they don't care, they just want some free labour i guess.
