A dad whose life was blighted by depression has been shortlisted for a national award after getting his life back on track and inspiring other people to do the same.
Glenn Moore was out of work and on benefits for two decades before he was referred to the Government’s Work Programme, delivered in Northampton by public services provider A4e.
However, he is now working as a maintenance technician for a local pub and volunteering for the organisations that helped him and he has even appeared on BBC Newsnight and in The Sun to talk about his experiences.
A4e was so impressed with his dramatic transformation they nominated him for Significant Achievement of the Year in Employment Related Services Association awards.
Glenn, 58, said: “I feel proud and honoured to have been nominated and shortlisted for this award, this is an incredible and exciting journey I am on.”
He will find out if he has won at the awards ceremony on June 16.
