When we asked Danny (someone we support) what he likes, he said:
I’m Danny, I’m 38. I have cerebral palsy and use a wheelchair, I have limited movement with my arms. I communicate using a liberator which is like a computer, I type what I want to say and it will then speak what I have written. I like being independent but I do need help and encouragement to achieve this. I can with your support make myself a cup of tea, smoothie and cook my own meal. I like going to the pub, clubbing. I am looking for someone upbeat, who is patient, a good listener with a good sense of humour.
