People who know me would say that I am energetic and enjoy a wide range of sporting activities on a regular basis including walking, swimming and trampolining so this can be a physically demanding role. I also like to maintain contact with my family and my team will support me with this. Members of my team will be effective communicators and I will work with my team to show them how I need them to communicate with me. My team will help me with all aspects of living in my own home and support me to achieve my goals and outcomes.
