As a single mother of a child with Autistic
Spectrum Disorder and Asthma, Kieran found it challenging to work.
Thanks to a loan and mentoring from The Prince's Trust, Kieran has
developed a business which gives her the financial security she
The 27-year-old from Coventry wanted to be a positive role-model
for her son, and provide a good quality of family life for him and
herself. The jobs she applied for and looked at did not give her
the flexibility she needed to look after him and give him the
special care and attention he needed in order for him to develop
Kieran was determined to overcome these challenges, but needed
somebody to give her a chance and show her what she could achieve.
She decided to approach The Prince’s Trust for support.
Her idea came from something she was not just passionate about,
but from something she lives and breathes every single day. She
wanted to set up a business that supported both professionals and
parents to support young children from all walks of life. Children
from areas of deprivation, children with special educational needs,
along with working with other professionals to deliver early
intervention and support to children with Special Educational Needs
and Disabilities, Kieran believes that all children have the right
to a good education and start in life, and she recognises the
difference it can make to the rest of their lives.
With a low-interest loan and mentor from The Trust, Kieran
managed to turn her dreams into a reality and her business is now
going from strength to strength. Creativity is central to her
business and every thing she does, Kieran’s business Imagine... has
contracts to deliver Training and Consultancy across Coventry and
Warwickshire City Council, along with other contracts from the
private, voluntary, and independent sectors.
Her life is now completely different, thanks to The Prince’s
Trust. She has achieved the financial security that she has craved
for so long and is able to give her son a better life while at the
same time developing her service to have a positive impact on the
lives of other children.
We would like to acknowledge the individuals or organisations
who have played a key role in helping this young person achieve
success through their Prince’s Trust programme.
