“Having worked for Real Lives since 2013 I have a good understanding of the ethos and have developed my role within the company, I love working here as I am passionate about recovery, peer support and ensuring people receive the care they deserve. I have experience supporting clients in many activities such as meetings, appointments, housing, community inclusion… I also am a PAL mentor within Real Lives so I support new workers get started on their journey as a PAL where needed.”

“I have worked at Real Lives since 2020. I enjoy supporting people with tasks around their homes (cleaning etc.) and community, such as shopping and keeping appointments, such as medical and beauty, and like to think that I am helping them live more comfortably and independently. My hobbies outside of work are walking my dog, crafting – eg crochet & painting, watching movies and just chilling listening to music.”

“My work history includes Ambulance Technician, Systems Analyst, and have spent the last 4 years working as an Outreach Support Worker; which I love as I really enjoy working with people out and about in the community and celebrating every goal we set ourselves. I really enjoy getting to know the people I work with and finding the best way to help them achieve their goals, in their own unique way. I am a relaxed, goal-oriented person who believes in the power of taking small steps. My hobbies include trying to grow food on my allotment, long walks in nature, films, science, nature, and spending time in the lovely Crocus Cafe. ”
