She took the break to raise her children

A Sidcup mother was helped back in to work after taking a four year break to raise her two children.

Daisy Donohoe, 28, felt the time was right to return to work, but was concerned the gap in her CV would put off employers.

But a scheme set up by the housing association responsible for the flats she lives in helped her back into work.

Daisy Donohoe, L&Q’s apprentice learning and development administrator said: “My apprenticeship has helped me to get the skills I needed to get back into employment after having my two children.”

Matthew Corbett, L&Q’s head of community investment, said:

“Some of our top staff started their careers with an apprenticeship and are proof that with hard work and dedication an apprenticeship can take you anywhere. Apprenticeships allowing local businesses and charitable organisations like ours to invest in the communities and residents we serve and promoting social mobility.”
