Breaking News . . . You First Support Workers have taken over the CEO's Blog!
The current pandemic is rightly focusing our attention on the role of the Key Worker. You First has some incredible front-line workers who are continuing to ensure that people with learning disabilities and/or autism are living lives of value, purpose and meaning at a time of severe restriction.
Support Workers are telling their personal stories of why they have chosen this career and why they have chosen to work with You First Support Services CIC.
You First is incredibly proud of the Support Workers who have come forward to share what are often deeply moving and emotional stories and in doing so they show just how genuine life experience often trumps formal experience in terms of developing sound values that in turn enable people to fulfil their ambition and lead lives of worth, meaning and purpose.
You can read their moving and inspirational stories by clicking here
