Meet the Team: Jack's Story

19 April 2020

I have been with the You First for nearly 5 months; I absolutely love being a Support Worker and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

Before joining You First, I received a second kidney transplant, and it changed my life both physically and mentally. 

During my stay in hospital I saw how hard all the doctors and nurses were working, caring for me and other patients as well as family members coming to visit them and this made me realise that care and support is a massive part of life. Working as a Support Worker I can care for and support individuals that have disabilities with their day to day lives and it’s just the best feeling I could ask for! 

Being a Support Worker is the most rewarding work ever; I love seeing individuals with all different types of disabilities achieving their goals in life; even things they never thought they could do! When they do achieve these goals, seeing their sense of personal fulfilment is amazing, I am so proud of them, and proud that I have supported them to achieve their ambition!

The whole of the You First team are amazing, I can’t fault them for what they do, especially through these hard times because of the coronavirus; they are so supportive and are just a great team to be part of!

Thank you You First! ❤️

If you would like to join the You First team as a Support Worker, drop us a line or call 0300 111 9999, we look forward to hearing from you!
