Autism Plus have supported Sandra for two years. Following the death of her mother she was admitted to a hospital assessment unit for 9 months. Autism Plus began supporting Sandra while she was still in the unit. She wanted support to live independently and move back into her Mother's flat.
With support from the Autism Plus supported living and person centred teams Sandra was able to return to her home and chose the level of support she needed from Autism Plus. Autism Plus supported Sandra in making choices about her life. She wanted to work so the team supported her to job search and she now has 3 voluntary jobs, including a job in the Autism Plus tuck shop with the focus on gaining paid employment.
Sandra is a fun outgoing person and enjoys socialising, her confidence and self esteem have grown with the structure and support and she is now a member of a local advocacy group which she attends every week.
