“I am 22 years old and have a brain injury from birth and learning difficulties. I have had support since I was 17 years old. I learn life skills Monday to Friday, which for example are Ironing, washing, stripping and making bed, dusting, collecting my medication, budgeting and doing online food shopping at the end of every week The kind of support worker that I'm looking for must get on well with me and my family plus other professionals (Neuro Psychologist, Psychotherapist and Occupational Therapist). They need to understand my needs, be sporty, must not take themselves too seriously. During the year we go on family and staff holidays either in UK or abroad. I have mild epilepsy, which is well controlled but have high anxiety. The support I need is for someone to guide me through these times and reassure me. When I have staff do sleep in's I need company, which makes sure I don't get bored. This normally happens when my family go away to a cottage during the weekends”
