Within a few months of employment I realised that Freespace was the way forward for me; ticking all my boxes for job satisfaction and personal fulfilment.

Having worked as a chef for many years, I searched for a job that would give me more job satisfaction. I learned about the ethos of Freespace and joined initially as a Relief support Worker on a part time basis. Within a few months of employment I realised that this was the way forward for me; ticking all my boxes for job satisfaction and personal fulfilment.

I successfully gained a full time position as a Support Worker in 2003 and with hard work and commitment I progressed to a DSM in 2007.

I really enjoy my job because every day is different, working alongside likeminded colleagues who want the best for the people we help support. The Freespace members have achieved so much in their lives and I have enjoyed helping them to achieve their outcomes and live the best life possible.

I am proud to be part of the Freespace team.
