Daniel was one of the first to complete a printing degree at the London College of Printing. He then went on to gain an MSc in IT and worked in customer service, IT management, and software for a number of print organisations.
Over the course of his career, Daniel has experienced various setbacks, including restructurings, closures and digitalisation. During those challenging times, he contacted The Printing Charity who have provided support, such as help with training, which has opened new opportunities for him.
So when he was made redundant after the first lockdown in 2020, Daniel knew he could count on us again. The continued presence of the charity means a great deal to him, as he explains; “I didn’t expect anything so being given an emergency grant plus help with everyday living costs and to buy a laptop for online training and job interviews means I’m in a more stable place. Your help makes a huge difference to my family’s financial and emotional wellbeing.”
He went on to add; “The Printing Charity is an absolutely wonderful, non-judgemental organisation and you’ve been there for me from the very start of my career. Just the fact that you care about my wellbeing means so much.”
We are so pleased to be able to support Daniel and people like him. If you work or have worked in the wider print industry, and you need help, whether it’s financial or emotional – get in touch.
