“Having completed a Psychology degree in Ireland I arrived in London in my very early 20s full of energy and passion and with a youthful belief that I could change the world! Little did I know that the job I would get would in fact change me, teach me so much and offer me opportunities to grow and develop as a person more than I could have ever wished. The job was a Support Worker supporting four young women who lived together in a house in West London and who had learning disabilities. They taught me so much and we had so much fun exploring different parts of my new city – London, together! I learned the true meaning of person-centred and got great support, training and development from my employer. That organisation was called Ealing Consortium – and 30 years later with some name changes and mergers – it’s now known as Certitude! While I have had a number of roles since, both within and outside of Certitude, the best career decision I ever made was to become a Support Worker!”
