Who will you support?

I am a 45-year-old gentleman with Autism and Learning Disabilities. I live in my own home, and I am looking for male Support Workers who can help me to reach my potential in life.

I love planes and trains and enjoy trips out to the airport / train stations in my mobility car. I am also well known in the local community, and I like to go out for meals to restaurants.

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.
