PAL and Tech Support

“I have been working with Real Lives since 2013. I provide recovery-focused, person-led support drawing upon my own personal lived experience, training and work within mental health services. I value honesty and healthy, balanced approaches, taking small steps to reach the individual’s goals. I work very hard at organising myself in order to stay consistently reliable and dependable. I also work on the Real Lives IT systems and provide support to other members of staff.”

“I have been a PAL at Real Lives since 2014 and in that time supported a number of clients. I am able to be a consistent role model in a someone’s life and adapt with them as their journey develops. I would say my support style is relaxed and flexible. I work well with people of all ages, both men and women. I have a good track history for doing good cleans, shops and helping people organise their homes. I am currently studying at University and I enjoy Yoga and other sports.”

“I first got involved with Real Lives around 8 years ago as a volunteer in the Crocus Cafe. My time at the Crocus was key to my own mental health recovery. After a number of years working with the Crocus Cafe, I was able to build the confidence and stability to enter paid employment in food using the experience I gained there. Having pursued this successfully for a few years, I have come back to Real Lives to help others live their lives as happily and independently as possible and to move into the care sector. I love to help others and I am a very supportive person; I hope to enable others to access the support and passion of Real Lives to enable them to enter or continue their own recovery. Outside of work, my hobbies include handmaking visual art; writing, designing and running home-made Dungeons and Dragons adventure games as well as playing the game myself; board games; learning rap songs; cycling; cooking and slackline rope-walking.”
