I currently live alone in a lovely flat in Worle, Weston-super-Mare. I am a disabled person but I never let this hold me back from achieving things in life. I have several years training and experience in professional fundraising behind me, with my strongest areas being Trust and Corporate Fundraising. I have also worked voluntarily in the areas of Information/Advice Giving, Support Work, Learning Support, Project Management and Social Event Organising. I am currently helping Shine North Somerset Support Group develop and provide services for people with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus, both of which I have. This doesn't take up a great deal of my time so I am looking for other voluntary experiences in the Weston-super-Mare area. I am equally good working on my own and as part of a group, and where possible I like to take the lead role. I enjoy working with people and I am good at developing lasting professional relationships. Due to my disability I am not looking for paid work as there are times in my life when I need to take short breaks from the work due to hospital treatment etc. This does not mean I don't have the skills required, it just means I need patience and understanding on occasion. I like listening to music,socialising with friends and family, using the computer for anything from word processing to searching the web. I try to keep as fit as I can but having a physical disability means its not always easy. I consider myself fairly intelligent and well motivated when given an exciting project to work on. I am also told I am a good listener.
