I started at CHEC in 1996 and work Monday to Friday. If I did not come to CHEC I would feel isolated and my days would be unfulfilled.
I really like coming in to work and I never know what the day will hold, every day is different and I enjoy here because it is a challenge.
At CHEC, when I do a design I know it’s for a reason, for a customer’s order or improving my abilities for the good of Centre. I have a role.
Without CHEC I feel that my life would be restricted as I need daily support to achieve little tasks which other people take for granted.
I would say to anyone who is disabled and finds it hard to get paid work but wants to learn new skills and have the structure of a working day just to try it.
I like the challenges here, like learning how to use new equipment and with a little bit of help I like problem solving. I have a purpose now.
