Richard has been working part time but his contract is finishing in 2 weeks. He has 3 children and struggles to keep on top of his financies. He would really like to get his fork lift truck licence renewed to give him a much better chance of gaining employment when this work ends. He has been homeless but is now rehoused, so getting another job would be a real boost for him. There are jobs available for people with a fork lift truck licence so it would make him more employable.
