Equity Charitable Trust played an invaluable part in helping me to afford to upgrade my skills and re-train as a transformational life coach. I cannot thank the Trust enough for their support, especially during the year of lockdown when things were so difficult anyway. Achieving my Diploma has been so empowering. It has given me access to a new career, and one that I can do alongside my acting if I so wish, or expand into a full-blown business should I choose. At the age of 58, this is an absolute blessing and I am now looking at the future with much more hope than I was before. Thank goodness that charities such as ECT exist, you have been a god-send!
