What is a Support Worker?
A support worker is someone who is able to help you regularly to live your life safely and as independently as possible. They may help with washing, dressing, toileting, accessing the community safely, with finances and with medication. This can be by a support provider such as Autism at Kingwood, or with a personal assistant. Please watch the below video to see what support workers do.
In order to get this type of formal support, you will need to apply for funding from the local authority.
