Profile – Laurence, Lancashire
I enjoy attending the baking classes and meeting people. It helps getting out of the house. I have been a street sweeper for 18 years, but had to stop for a while. With the assistance of my support workers I have returned to work 3 days a week and hope to go back full-time soon. My support workers help me with my epilepsy medication and also with shopping. Before, I was having problems taking my medication and I kept falling over, but now it is ok and I can work.
He’s a smasher Derek [Senior Support Worker], and all the support workers, I love the lot of them. I couldn’t say anything bad about them. They’re like my big family, them and all my family.
