About Our Client

Our client has a condition called Hurlers Syndrome. This affects the lower part of his body, causing weakness in his legs and therefore, is a full-time manual wheelchair user. With good upper body strength, our client is able to self-propel which enables him to maintain his independence.

This is our client s second time away from home, and therefore looking for a PA to help with personal care, academic support and everyday life.

As written by him

"I m looking for a Personal Assistant (PA) to help me with care needs, and to assist me throughout my journey as a University student."

"My interests are mostly sport related. I love watching football (Liverpool FC!) I play wheelchair rugby, basketball and train at the gym up to 3 times a week. I also enjoy socialising at the pub and fancy watching a few games at the local football stadium. I m also a keen gamer and play PS5 regularly. I have quite a dry sense of humour and want someone who can give a bit of banter too."
