#25stories – Evolving support gives people a chance at living
Tony began working in the care sector 37 years ago and for the last 25 years he has been supporting people with learning disabilities, autism or both. As support has evolved, he has found he has more time working with people and providing direct support. This enables him to better support individuals to make their own choices, to give them time to do that. The difference time makes is obvious. He explains that one of the gentlemen he supports, Clarence, has gone from saying single words to short sentences.
