John is celebrating over 30 years being supported by and working with us in Ealing. John used to be a Treat Me Right! trainer for Certitude and currently helps to run our inductions for new recruits. We spoke with him recently about this impressive milestone.
“I moved into my current home in 1992!
“It has been very good and I have made lots of friends. My housemates have been great and I live very close to my big family. I live here with three housemates who are my really good friends and I feel very happy. We support each other.
“My best memory is from when I organised a football tournament near The ARC. I remember we wore a yellow striped kit and I scored six times! I also have great memories of art sessions, a catering course we did, and when I wrote a book about my life.
“Since I moved to Ealing, my housemates have changed and the staff have changed too. And when I moved in the walls were pink, which I wanted to change! Now the walls are green and much better.
“It has also been over 10 years since I have been doing the Certitude new staff induction sessions with Aisling. I am very happy and proud about that and my 30 years in Ealing.”
