Caroline Larke

Support Worker

After completing her contract as a teaching assistant supporting a young man with special needs she started looking for a position that would make the most of her years of experience in teaching, child protection and special needs support and that’s when she came across AWF. She now supports our Adults in Work Skills in a wide range of crafts and life skills.

 

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!

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

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.

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.

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

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 !!!!

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.

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.

Having spent many years in school with little improvements in I’s behaviour and speech, in just a few weeks with you the improvements in both areas are plain to see. Please continue as you are, as life at the moment for us as a family is greatly improved because of your input.

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.
