"The Stephen Harrison Academy has really helped me in a lot of ways. It has built up my confidence and helped me get a job as an apprentice nursery nurse. I first started the Academy on Monday nights and as my skills got better I became a volunteer, helping others to play and doing some coaching. I have been a volunteer for six months and my confidence has really built up. At the moment I am a nursey nurse apprentice at the northern General Hospital in Sheffield, I also volunteer for Steve at weekends. If I ever need any help the Academy is the place to go. I would like to say a big thanks to the SHA for everything they have done for me."
"Before I worked here I didn't go out much, I was very lonely, this came to feel normal after a while. I'd like to thank my parents for encouraging me to join the snooker group at Stephen Harrison Academy so I could mix with other people and gain some confidence. I became a volunteer helping out at some of the groups. I got a good reference from the academy and I've never looked back since. I gained so much confidence my self-esteem rocketed and now I've got the best job in the world and it suits me down to the ground. I'll always have time for the academy though, everyone made me feel very welcome, looking back it was my first step in being able to feel normal and take my place in everyday life."
