Lucia valued her time with Inspira

“I met Deb from Inspira at a careers fair in Workington. Deb was my ‘sane brain’ and gave me advice on employers and local companies.

"She kept me focused on what I wanted and guided me through the Cumbrian employment market.

"It was quite daunting getting back into employment but Deb kept me motivated. I really, really enjoyed the experience and valued my time with Inspira."
