Tracey Winterbone

Support worker

Joined AWF as our café lead and after a successful time running the café she decided she wanted a change but we weren’t going to let her go that easily so she decided to stay with AWF and moved over to our supported living service and now works with our members in their own homes or on our outreach programme supporting members in the community.

 

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.

It was a massive decision for his family to make and by choosing AWF it means they trust totally in the service. I am of the opinion that AWF is the only provision in the county for D and he is very happy to attend.

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

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 !!!!

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.

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.

I always have a smile on my face after a day with the members of the team. They are all individuals and each, in their own way, bring joy to my life. They are all much appreciated and I enjoy the gardening of course!

To all the staff at About with Friday, I had a wonderful time with you guys, and I want to say a big thank you for looking after me. Love from K.

I just cannot thank you enough for taking K my daughter so that she could have fun with her friends on holiday in Milton Keynes, […] it made her extremely happy.

Selfishly for me it gave my wife a much sought after period of respite exhausted after 16 years of constant care. Complete respite is dependent upon the knowledge that your child is in safe professional caring hands. The ‘about with friends’ staff impress me because they display such enthusiastic vocational attitudes towards their care.
