LLANDRINDOD WELLS

About Myself

I am a chatty, sociable 23-year-old woman living at home with my Mum & Dad in the Llandrindod Wells.

I have Spina Bifida & shunted Hydrocephalus. I am a non-weight bearing wheelchair user and therefore need support with getting up, going to bed, personal care & I need to be hoisted.

I currently volunteer with a Mums & Toddler group once a week which I enjoy.

I have lots of interests - I work from home writing resources for young people, I volunteer as a Sunday School teacher with my church, I love listening to music & walking my assistance dog.

I enjoy catching the train or bus for a day out & often meet up with friends in Newtown & Brecon.
