About the Employer

I am an 18 year old male who is living at home with my mum, step dad and step brother in South Wrexham.

 

Some of my hobbies include gaming on my pc and x box. My favourite games on the x box are Red Dead and Warzone, and on the pc I like to watch youtube.

 

I am keen on having some independence away from my family where I can go to gaming cafes, shopping, and to socialise in a number of different settings.

 

I am happy to try anything once and willing to take part in new activities if I have not tried them before.

 

I have cerebral palsy and do have a wheelchair to use, but currently I am refusing to use this, although I do get tired and need to rest now and again. I have epilepsy but this is predominantly controlled by medication.

 

My speech can sometimes be difficult to understand, I have used different devies and support in the past but I don’t find them useful, I am very self aware if somebody is struggling to understand me and will slow my speech down to help others.

 

I am an easy going person who will talk to anybody and would class myself as a bubbly person. I love to meet new people and visit new places.
