‘’Hello, my cocker’s, my name is Colleen, I am 68 and I live in Newquay.
An exciting opportunity has become available to join my team, this doesn’t happen very often.
I am looking for someone fun to understand my needs and enjoy the same activities as me.
Can you enrich my life?
Do you have the ability to think and act creatively?
Are you motivated to guide and support me to achieve my goals?
Will you support me to find meaningful day opportunities?

If this sounds like you then please get in touch.
