About Me

My name is Ryan I am 22 years old and I am looking for a PA to support me accessing my local community and enabling me to get out of the house.

I have just finished college and a placement at the Baltic. I am currently looking into any voluntary work I can access or different placements that I can attend supported by a PA.

I enjoy sport, music and going into Newcastle. I love football and enjoy going out to the Nine Bar on a Saturday to watch the match and having a drink.  I also enjoy going out for food and looking around Newcastle.

I live in the family home with my Mum, Dad and brother.  My Mum will provide a lot of the training for the role.

I have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy as a result of this I need a lot of support in my daily life.

Main Duties

The role will involve supporting me, to access my local community, including local pubs, to meet up with friends and to take part in volunteer placements and activities. It will also include day trips further afield and the occasional overnight stay in places such as York, Durham. I would also like to look at playing wheelchair football or Boccia.
