Suzi's story

“I recently returned from Malawi where I worked as a freelance journalist.”"

Ian's story

“One of the reasons I’ve been able to stay out of trouble and out of prison has been MyNav – an online informal learning platform.”"

I’m 25 years old and up until seven months ago, I was in and out of prison from the age of 16. I came to live in Scarborough Foyer after I was released from prison and told that the Foyer could offer me support if I wanted to stop offending.

Fabien's story

“I’ve proved to myself that if I want something and work hard, I can achieve whatever I want in life.”"
