Charlie's Story

Hi I am Charlie.

Charlie's story

I am the oldest in my family and my mum has brought me and my younger brothers up.

I am just finishing school and don't know what options are out there. I know my mum is struggling and want to help but I don't know how.

I look after my younger brothers while my mum is at work and hang out with my friends when I can.

The characters stories are based on real life events of individuals in Preston and the services that have helped them. 

Do you have a story to tell?

Charlie's Story - Employment and Volunteering

I have always had an interest in construction and my mate was going to an open day at Preston Vocational center. So I went for a look around the center and had a taster of different trades.
