Support Worker, Bramley Lawn
I started working for Bramley Elderly Action in September 2014.
My role is to support and plan activities on the two days I work. Making the Lawns a fun place to be and hopefully to help the people who attend to be creative, be social and energetic and embrace life.
I’ve lived in Bramley all my life so I know the area well. My background is mainly office work, but when I got made redundant I looked at a career change in the form of teaching assistant and took myself off to college to do level 2 NVQ in supported learning. Due to a long spell of volunteering at a local school I went into care work as a support worker for Care UK. I found this a very satisfying role and applied to do level 3 NVQ in Adult and Child Social Care which I was awarded this year. I’m not afraid of trying new things or learning new things and I look forward to getting Bramley Lawn off the ground.
Hobbies and interests: love rugby, walking my dog Archie and I’ve just learnt to crochet.
So pop into the Lawns, kettle always on and we’ll be glad to see you.
