Jayne Tapp Designs
In 2013 I became severely ill with a life changing chronic illness. I had to leave my job and return to my family home so I could be cared for full time.
At this point I was bed bound and basic tasks such as reading or brushing my hair were huge challenges. But I was determined that I wouldn’t let my illness control my life.
It took 3 years but I was then a lot stronger and looking at employment. I quickly realised that employment just wasn’t an option. My health was still so unpredictable that there was no way I could maintain employment.
This is when I found out about The Prince’s Trust and the Enterprise Programme. In 2016 I completed the programme and launched my own business, Jayne Tapp Design.
I make personalised wooden cards and artwork from my home studio in Liverpool. Working from home and running my own business means I can now work around my health.
The Prince’s Trust believed in me, even when I didn’t. They have helped me to build a life for myself that I didn’t think was possible and I no longer feel defined by my illness.
