Ailish believes anyone can be a support worker, but to be a good support worker you need something special and not everyone understands what it takes.
“No two days are the same [being a support worker]. I often go home, get in my car and think; I love my job. If someone told me it isn’t a meaningful role, I would invite them to learn more about it.
“Anyone can be a support worker, but to be a good support worker you need to have a kind and caring nature, and also be resilient. It can be hard, but you have a support network and you can ask for help.”
