BBC Radio 4 Appeal featuring our patron Betty Jackson image

On Sunday 27 January, Betty Jackson will be broadcasting a week-long charity appeal on BBC Radio 4 to raise funds for Smart Works.  Betty is a long-standing patron and champion of Smart Works, and the BBC appeal aims to raise vital funds to help get more women back into employment.

In the appeal, Betty tells the story of Smart Works client Shana, 
who was determined to get back to work after quitting her nursing diploma to care for her dying grandfather. Shana felt she was letting down her children by failing to get back into work. Smart Works gave Shana the confidence and self-belief she needed succeed at interview.

The appeal will air at at 07:54 and 21:25 on January 27 and 15:27 on 31 January 2019.

You can listen to the appeal here from January 27 onwards.
