Julie Ison

Support Worker

After spending 20 yrs as a carer for her late husband, Julie continued to work as a home career. She gained experience of dementia patients while working at Halsey House Cromer. To further her knowledge and experience she joined AWF and finds daily inspiration from working with our members

 

Thank you for taking K to Milton Keynes on holiday, it made her extremely happy. Selfishly, it gave my wife a much sought after period of respite after 16 years of constant care.

We cannot tell you what AWF means to us as a family – a lifeline, a light in the dark. Something that has offered our daughter equality, to have a social life and really support us as a family.

I haven’t seen D for ages and he looks like a new man . The stress has gone from his face – he looks great Well done !!!!

AWF offers and amazing, caring, supportive group to both special needs adults/children & their families. Since N joined you he has been to some fantastic places, met some amazing friends and done activities we would never have thought he’d do. You have helped our family life improve by making N a happier, more content, confident boy.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and everyone else that supported H on the recent trip – she had an amazing time. I enjoyed look at the Twitter feed to see what you had been up to.

A big thank you to yourself and the About with Friends staff for another great trip! J had a fantastic time, going on the Harry Potter Studio Tour, which he had wanted to do for ages and ages.

This is the best transition I have had for a student in the whole five years I have taught 6th formers!

Over the last five years I have had a fortnightly, 2 hour designated gardening slot. I highly value your service and ethos.

I’ve got my life back

After 30 years of trying to get P engaged in activities, he is now, under your care, beginning to grow like a great Oak tree.
