The meeting was held at held at the Congleton base of charity, Visyon. Visyon is a charity organisation supporting the emotional health of children, young people and their families in the Cheshire and Staffordshire Moorlands area.

Tanya was keen to learn more about the work of the charity and also meet with others involved in the sector to learn more about the range of careers available and the routes into these. She found the opportunity to be extremely fruitful and came away from the meeting having learned a great deal and with various offers for work placements.
