Real-life story: Ralph

What I do

I spend my time supporting people (Members) to build their independence and connect with others. That used to mean going into people’s houses but not now (during the Covid-19 pandemic). Now, I support people through their windows, in their gardens, over the phone and on video calls. Like the world around me, I’ve had to quickly adapt. Many people live alone. They found the lockdown really challenging.

The best bits

It is exciting to be on the frontlines, delivering a service that is genuinely person-centred and reflects the extraordinary diversity of human flourishing. I love that when members are allowed to call the shots and are given genuine choices, they often choose audaciously different ways of living.
