Growing up with a cousin with disabilities and seeing the help she received from her support staff inspired me to go into this field.
As soon as I finished my degree in Fine Art I started working with individuals with disabilities and have previously worked with Barnardos, Enable, Sense and Tiphereth. Straightaway I realised I loved working in the charity sector and started raising money for other charities by doing the Race for Life and running the Edinburgh marathon.
I love combining my creative skills and the experience I have of working with members and Neighbourhood Networks is the ideal organisation to do this with.
The role of Community Living Worker is so unique and the positive changes I’ve seen in members in such a short period time is amazing. I hope to continue improving members lives and working with Neighbourhood Networks for may years to come!
