After being out of work for just over 2 years due to declining mental health, I decided that I was feeling a bit better and wanted support to help me get back into the workforce. So I did my research and happened to come across Ostara Australia.
I turned up to my appointment so anxious and stressed but I was quickly put at ease once I spoke to the ladies in the office, Abbey and Rebecca.
After explaining my situation and my goals, I felt supported straight away. I felt heard.
I knew I had come to the right place.
I was very fortunate, as I talked about myself, Abbey advised me of a role perfectly suited for my situation.
The interview was a couple of days later and I was successful. I was to start work the following week. Another one of my goals was to start studying nursing in July, Abbey has assisted me throughout the testing process and is continuing to help me with my enrolment.
I am now comfortably working 15 hours a week doing administration work for a community organisation.
It has been 5 weeks since my first visit with Ostara. Abbey has been supportive every step of the way and even calls and visits me at work to see how I am going.
I am very fortunate and thankful to Abby, Rebecca and Ostara for the opportunities and supports they have provided me thus far.
