About this opportunity

She says:

"I’m a young woman with autism living in the west of Edinburgh. I am quite independent and settled in my home but need support to make sure I keep up the good work.

I like to go swimming, play a variety of sports, go to the cinema, football and attend college. I enjoy long walks, picnics, watching films and soaps (especially Neighbours and Home and Away), spending time with family, baking and cooking.

I am a very active person who likes to stay busy and would therefore like to meet people who can keep up with me. I like people who are fun-loving, confident and have a good sense of humour like me. I like to meet potential candidates for cake and coffee to see if we get on."
