Tom’s Story

“I applied for loads of jobs – I wanted to earn my own money and come off benefits.

I had an interview that went really well.

I was offered the job but they asked for my birth certificate to prove I could work in the UK.

I didn’t have it and couldn’t afford to get a copy. Without it they were going to give the job to someone else.

Sophie’s Fund gave me the money I needed.

I was very depressed when I wasn’t working, but now I feel great when I am praised for doing a good job.”
