The Sweet Life

Chris is supported in Burscough, West Lancashire and has lived here for a few years now.  Over the past year, Chris has been in paid employment at the local SPAR.

Chris looks after the sweet section in the store and keeps it all nice and tidy. Working in the SPAR, Chris says he “has made a lot more friends”, something which his Support Worker Daniel agrees. “He has gained good standing within the community.”

Daniel continues, “I have also noticed when supporting Chris a lot of people in the community have approached him and said hello and they even comment on what a good job he does there.”

Chris enjoys his job and he always ensures he is clean, tidy and ready on time. Although his staff within his support team walk him to work, he sorts his own taxi home; a big boost for Chris’ confidence.

Manager Sue says “Chris is a hard worker and an absolute joy to be around.”
