Our first pupil who passed with us has transformed her life and her story is incredible.  Thank you to all of our sponsors.

"Hi, I'm Tyne I am 25 and a Mum to two beautiful girls. 

I've had to deal with many traumatic experiences from a young age including; the separation of my parents, I was married which ended after only 6 months, homelessness and unexpected pregnancy. 

My mental health plummeted with a health scare and an operation that resulted in a hospital stay and was officially diagnosed with depression and am receiving support & medication. 

Driving has given me a purpose and the ability to focus on the future and what possibilities this will open up for me. My village is isolated, and although I work in a nearby village public transport links are limited and due to be ended within the very near future.”
