FRIENDSHIP, INDEPENDENCE AND A LIFELINE FOR FAMILIES
PERSONALLY I WOULD FEEL LOST WITHOUT LIFEWORKS. I LIKE THE COMMUNITY FEELING I’VE GOT, LIKE WHEN WE GO TO THE BEACH FOR THE SURFING DAYS AND THE OTHER FAMILIES ARE THERE. NO ONE IS JUDGING YOU, NO ONE IS JUDGING DAN, OR ME. THE STAFF ARE AMAZING – THEY GO ABOVE AND BEYOND..

At Lifeworks, Dan feels really valued as a person, that he is an important part of the group. The activities give him just that bit of independence – like most 16 year-olds they enable him to do his own thing. But it is the friendships at Lifeworks he gets most out of.
He has Global Development Delay, which sees him go through life generally very happy, but he can repeatedly ask the same questions and needs to be constantly occupied. Whilst is hard to say, it is nice to be able to have a break from caring when he goes to Lifeworks.
I recommend Lifeworks to everyone that I meet – even in the supermarket. Lifeworks is an amazing thing – the staff and the people, the volunteers. It has been good for the whole family. If we didn’t have Lifeworks anymore it would be very upsetting. It has been so good for Dan.”
