Dale loving life with Humber Llamas after completing Tigers Pathways programme
Posted on 26th January 2023 at 16:44
Dale, 18, first introduced himself to staff of the Tigers Trust back in November 2022 at the Care Leavers Memorial Shield Event at the Tigers Trust Arena.
This event takes place every year and sees Care Leavers take on their Personal Advisors in a game of football to pay tribute to those Care Leavers who are no longer with us today.
Dale had attended to simply just watch the game, but immediately introduced himself to staff at the Tigers Trust.
Dale was intrigued to find out more about the Trust’s Tigers Pathways employability and wellbeing programme.
He explained to Amy and Paul that he needed some support with his confidence and creating a CV to increase his chances of employment.
From here, Dale signed up to the programme and hasn’t looked back since.
Throughout his time on the Tigers Pathways programme, Dale attended every session and showed a fantastic attitude towards his development, creating his own CV and contributing to group conversations around employability.
Dale had previously studied a college course around Animal Care and learnt on the programme that his expertise was with animals and the outdoors.
Amy and Paul researched opportunities for Dale and came across Humber Llamas, a farm that cares for different animals and supports individuals with disabilities to run the farm giving them hands on experience and independence.
Dale spoke with Zoe from Humber Llamas on the phone to make sure the opportunity was right for him, and from here Dale was supported by Amy and Paul on what to expect.
Throughout the programme, Dale had a fantastic ‘can do’ attitude which led to him securing his next steps in the career path he wants to pursue.
Alongside his role at Humber Llamas, Dale has also supported the Tigers Trust with tournaments and volunteering his time to help out, showing his willingness to gain valuable work experience.
Amy and Paul recently paid a visit to Humber Llamas to see how Dale was finding his new programme and found that Dale is now thriving at Humber Llamas along with the other young people at the farm.
The Tigers Trust would like to congratulate Dale on his progression so far, he has made incredible steps and we're all extremely proud of his journey.
