When the impossible becomes possible
A long-term Edge Client Ashveer experienced great adversity yet has still been able to experience a life-long dream. This is thanks to the generosity of the WA Police force, who helped us make the impossible, possible.
Ashveer always wanted to be a Police officer, but sadly this is not possible due to a head injury he acquired in his childhood. After hearing his story, Edge reached out to WA Police to see if there was some way Ashveer still might be able to experience some Police training. Even though employment as an officer was not an option, we felt that it would be a wonderful way for Ashveer to grow his confidence and start to explore other options.
To everyone’s delight, Senior Sergeant Les Plane from WA Police put in an incredible effort to make this happen for Ashveer! Last month we accompanied him to the Police support unit based at Maylands, where he spent a day with the Horse, Dog and Tactical response units.
We then again accompanied Ashveer to the Police Academy at Joondalup, where he was invited to spend the full week training with Police Academy Recruits. He’s even been invited to attend the Police Academy graduation ceremony later this year!
As you can see the smile on Ashveer’s face is priceless. He was so overjoyed and not only has he made some memories to last a lifetime, he’s also learned some skills that will certainly help him on his journey with Edge to find employment!
Thank you again to the WA Police force for being so generous with their time and energy, we will be sure to keep you updated on Ashveer’s achievements.
