I’ve been a part of ubu for many years because I really enjoy what I do. It gives me enormous satisfaction to enable the people I work with to overcome the challenges they face in leading more independent, fulfilled and happy lives. When I see a smile on someone's face, it makes everything I do worthwhile. To be an effective enabler means you need to have a positive, enthusiastic attitude in everything you are doing, while being understanding and tolerant of others and you need to have a sense of humour!

The knowledge shared by others and the training I have been given over the years has enabled me to provide the best support possible to the people I serve. Like many other people in ubu, the fact that no two days are ever the same is something that inspires and surprises me. It means that there are always new challenges to face, to understand, to gain experience and to learn from. I now have a confidence in myself through learning and growing with ubu that I didn’t have before and along the way I have overcome many of my own personal challenges too.
