RBLI’s transformational LifeWorks programme has proudly supported more than 1,000 people over the past year. The nationally-delivered course postponed its face-to-face delivery during the pandemic, moving instead to a online, remote support model.

Since then, the course has returned to its ordinary delivery whilst keeping elements of the remote service to support those who need it most. As a result of 24 years in the Royal Navy, Nick now suffers from severe arthritis, and issues with his spine, hips and joints. He said this left him severely lacking in confidence. However, after undertaking a face-to-face LifeWorks course in March, his job-searching efforts are reinvigorated. Nick, Pictured, said: “I walked out of the LifeWorks course smiling. It was a massive confidence boost and I should have done it ages ago.”
