Sam Trusts Prince's Trust for Business Start-up

". . . a massive thank you. Yesterday I got awarded my grant to start my own business through the Prince's Trust. If it wasn't for all your help then this would not have happened" - Sam Frost.

When Sam first came to Sarina Russo he had a very negative attitude and wasn't happy with the type of jobs he had to attend and thought it was all a waste of time.

Sarina Russo Job Access secured Sam a work placement at Chichester College and he has gone from strength to strength.

". . it made me hungry to work again. It made me get back my drive after being out of work for a long period".

As Sam's drive returned, Sarina Russo Job Access recommended that he think about running his own business.

"It was just one of those things that everyone else could do but not me. However when we spoke about it I realised maybe I could do it and I'm so grateful because it's one of the best things anyone has ever done for me," Sam said.

A lot of Sam's time is taken by his own business. He has a grant from the Prince's Trust, a Business Mentor and has a part-time job at the Brighton Centre.

Sam believes if it wasn't for the Sarina Russo Job Access team he would still be sitting on Job Search Allowance feeling sorry for himself.

"I would be very grateful if you could send my thanks on to the whole Sarina Russo Job Access team (Shelby, Lee, Martin, Georgie, Nicole and Frances) as you really have made this all possible," Sam said
