Case Study: Tammy

Tammy (35), a Plymouth Community Homes tenant, was referred to Skills Launchpad Plymouth by the Wolseley Trust’s Social Prescribing service. Looking to gain some learning and progress to university, she met with our Community Lead Coordinator James to discuss her ideas.


As an outreach worker, James met Tammy in the community for a coffee, to chat about her plans and learning aspirations. They discussed a few routes into education, with particular mention of City College Plymouth and The Open University.


Following their meeting, Tammy contacted City College about possibly enrolling onto an access course, with a view to applying for university. Tammy has since been offered an interview and has also requested a prospectus from The Open University to view further options.


Here’s what Tammy had to say:


“Meeting James helped me by finding my way, guiding me with the right ideas, and links I need to get back into studying next year.”


“I was nervous at first, but after meeting James, I feel confident and empowered to do what I need to do”


Describing Skills Launchpad Plymouth’s support, Tammy said, “welcoming, fun and knowledgeable.”
