The duties are varied and no two days will be the same. The people we support are individuals and they all treated as such. However, as a general guide, once restrictions are lifted you can expect to go cycling, horse riding, music sessions, hydro, walking, events, safari parks, places of interest, café’s, public houses, meals out, picnics, day trips and holidays etc.
