I have always struggled with my weight! It was about time to change that. With the help and support of staff, my Doctor I became a Vegetarian. I can honestly say I am more comfortable now with my weight loss thanks to the support form all at NCP.
When I came to NCP I was not very self sufficient, with the help of Staff at NCP I can now do so many things. I am always out in the community on my own I have a Job in the local Nursery and regularly visit Church without any support at all. I am a very well know part of the community now.
It had always been a dream of mine to go on a holiday abroad without my Family. Last year with the support of the Activities Assistant and Support workers, I was able to go for one week to Tenerife with my Boyfriend for a great holiday where I achieved so many personal goals.
I am an undergraduate studying BA Health and Social Care at the University of Greenwich, I have worked at Livability NCP for two years. I enjoy the interaction with the diverse residents, it also gives me my much needed experience to adapt into my studies.
