Who will you support? (1-2-1 care package)
I am a 52-year-old gentleman with an ABI, Autism and Learning Disabilities. I live in my own bungalow, and I am looking for male Support Workers who can help me to reach my potential in life.
Watching football is my passion and I go to all the matches in my mobility car on a weekend. I am also well known in the local community and enjoy going for walks and to the local shops.
I will need your support to help keep me safe and empower me to work towards my goals. I would like to be supported by people who are person centred in their approaches, who are also motivating, patient and non-judgemental so I can achieve maximum independence.
