I am a young man who would like to employ a Personal Assistant to support me to access the community and do the things that I would like to do. I like Going for walks, nature and trips to National Trust properties/gardens/museums. I also enjoy football, reading books and playing scrabble.
I need reassurance when participating in groups or activities as I can become anxious if not supported appropriately. and to help me explore new activities to form new friendships.
I require support to ensure I understands any decisions that need to be made and needs to be involved in any decision process regarding my wellbeing or outcomes.
Certain noises can trigger me to be upset like loud noises and dogs.
It would be an advantage if the PA drives and access to own car with correct insurances.
