Terry’s Story

"Equip visits have built up my confidence again."
I look forward to my Community Support Worker (CSW)’s visits and the company.

More often than not, we have had fine weather to go out and sit in the park. This has built up my confidence to get out and back into the community once more.

One of the things that has given me great joy and a deep, deep feeling of peace within me is going back to church. Once I expressed this was something I would like to do again, my CSW got Carol to come and visit.

Carol found a local church that holds a weekly communion service on a Wednesday. This has meant a lot to me.

A bonus good cup of coffee and homemade cake afterward gives me the opportunity to get to know one or two of the other folk there. I am very grateful to Equip for this opportunity and their visits have meant so much to me.
