Mark suffers a long-term illness that makes it very difficult for him to get and keep a job. His passion is creating amazing, military-scale models.
He met with the Learning Links team and was matched with a new, local, creative, small business who are looking for a part-time, self-employed workshop helper to assist in finishing, completing and packaging laser cut decorative wood wares. He now works 16 hours a week at the workshop on a flexible basis.
This gives Mark the chance to turn his model hobby into a business and sell his models to collectors across the UK and around the world. He is also looking at designing and selling some of his models in kit form.
