I have always been passionate about the wellbeing of people l come into contact with. Within my current and previous  role as a support worker, l have gained vast experience of working with vulnerable individuals where l supported them with their daily activities and ensured their wellbeing was paramount in the support given. Currently am working with young adults those with a diagnosis of autism and behaviours which challenge others, in turn enabling the people l support to live a meaningful and fulfilling life. I believe strongly in the ideas of diversity, equality and inclusion and have adopted these principles to my practice remaining consistently non-discriminatory and non-judgemental. Possessing such an encompassing attitude has enabled me to work effectively from a person centered approach and develop positive working relationships with service users and co-workers alike. Through utilising my strong inter-personal skills I have supported service users towards developing life skills and attaining their personal goals. As part of this proactive approach I have promoted choice, Independence, dignity, rights and responsibilities. I have an HNC in Occupational Therapy Support which has enabled me to develop in practice. Over the last ten years l have worked in both Health and Social Care field with people with a range of physical, mental and social abilities. I have learnt to always place the people l support at the forefront of everything l do while taking a holistic approach to improve their lives. I went on and enrolled for a Degree course in BSc (Hons) Occupational Therapy in Glasgow Caledonian University and studied for 4 years, however, due to personal and financial reasons exited with a level 3 award attaining a Degree in BSc Health and Social Care. While completing my degree, l came across the term Reablement which is a strengths-based, person-centred approach that promotes and maximises independence and wellbeing. It aims to ensure positive change using client-defined goals and is designed to enable people to gain, or regain, their confidence, ability, and necessary skills to live as independently as possible, especially after an illness, deterioration in health or injury. My previous employment l worked as a Rehabilitation Support Worker within a multidisciplinary team in a primary Care settings including clients’ home. The main role involved assisting and carrying out delegated duties in line with provision of quality evidence-based practice to clients, which included implementation of care and rehabilitation plans written by, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Registered Nurses.  I gained valuable experience while working as a rehabilitation support worker in the intermediate care providing short time support to service users after a fall or stay in hospital with an aim of recovering regaining or increase their independence. I possess effective listening and communication skills which are vital while supporting service-users to achieve their goals and wishes. I have always maintained confidentiality as in contact with sensitive information regarding service users and accurate, and timely documented clients progress in therapy. I am able to prioritise my workload depending on the functional abilities, safety of the service-user while carrying out their daily occupations.  Working with vulnerable individuals is very rewarding and this comes with many responsibilities; everyone has a right to live their lives free from fear, abuse and neglect. l have a duty of care to protect individuals safety and their basic human rights  while following the six principles of The Care Act 2014 to take a person-centred approach when safeguarding vulnerable adults.  I have also had the privilege of working in various hospital wards as a bank clinical support worker which l thoroughly enjoyed looking after patients and carrying out all the vital tasks such as monitoring their wellbeing under the supervision of Registered nurses. I am a working mother of 2 children and being a mother has given me great organisational skills which have taught me to manage my time more effectively whilst raising a family.
