You’ll be enthusiastic and take an active interest in their hobbies which may include going to local events, listening to music, going swimming and out for a walk, playing and watching sports and getting involved in arts and crafts along with many more activities. The people we support love trying new things and we'll be looking to you to help identify opportunities for participation and inclusion for the people we support.
