I still remember how I felt when my manager pulled me into a meeting to let me know that our whole team was being made redundant. 

My heart dropped, I had just moved into a new city with my then 6 year old daughter and the only thing I could think of was 'what am I going to do'. Fortunately I was lucky enough to be working for a great company and my manager did everything he could to help me find a new opportunity.
