I also like learning new things and I have been attending college but unsure how that will go ahead next year. I’m open to new experiences. I do well in some areas of my life. However, I experience some barriers which I feel I need assistance with. This role will enable me to achieve my future goals and live the life I want to lead. Part of the role would be to help me establish a routine around my home that fits around my life. This will improve my mental health and organisational skills and will help me concentrate on the key parts of my life which are important to me The ideal person would be friendly, approachable, understanding and able to listen. I am looking for someone to bounce my ideas off and not decide for me, perhaps sometimes offering me a suggestion. I want to continue to feel empowered and more in control of my life.”
