We are an active bunch of people and enjoy 1-1 support to attend local social groups, church and going to the pub. Some of us also like to go swimming and horse riding. This is very much a hands-on job where no two days are the same.

We like to visit our families and we enjoy to visit others outside of our home which we need 1-1 support to maintain. We all have individual interests and these can vary from going away on holiday, day trips, art & crafts, gardening, singing/dancing and planning karaoke & theme nights. This is very much a hands-on job where no two days are the same.
