Carol is Deng’s safe harbour

Carol tells us:


I first met Deng when he was going through a difficult time in his life and I began working as his PA (personal assistant) to give him some emotional and practical support.


Deng is now living with me in my home and thriving as part of my small family. He has an active social life, his own space in the family home and is continuing to grow in confidence. He continues to develop new skills and enjoy new experiences.


Over the past eight years I have seen his confidence and social skills grow tremendously and had good reports and feedback from his college tutors and work placements. I am reassured that I am making a difference in his life which is very rewarding.


Working with Deng has been a very rewarding experience and has given me a sense of financial freedom too.
