I’m a support worker and previously worked as a sales engineer but got to the point that I wanted a career change. I’m also a martial arts coach and knew that helping people was my niche so that’s why I wanted to go into care.
There’s lots of examples of why I love what I do however, there’s one guy who is part of the football team and when I started he struggled to engage in the game. Over the past year we’ve seen a real difference, he’s shielding the ball, tackling and really playing the game. It’s such a wow moment for us, he’s developed in confidence and independence and this is just one of many examples, it’s inspiring!
