Who Will I Be Supporting?

We support three individuals in their 40s-50s:

  • Outgoing Lady: Loves going to the theatre, weekend getaways, cooking meals from scratch, and playing games on her phone.
  • Active Lady: Enjoys gym, water aerobics, working on a farm, music, dancing, art, and holidays to Cornwall.
  • Spontaneous Chap: Enjoys music, singing, going to the day centre, and having a pint at the men's club. He’s very funny and adventurous.

They have learning disabilities, Down syndrome, and autism. They live together in their shared home but still have close relationships with their families, who they visit some weekends. Creative support workers who communicate well and have a good sense of humour would be a wonderful match.
