Exploring the local area
Accompanied by Surrey Choices, Andrew goes out for regular walk and talks around his local park and lake. Each walk, Andrew learns new things about the area as well as boosting his knowledge by exploring the nature around him.
“He needed encouragement and someone nearby to help him feel safe with someone nearby. I encourage him to explore and meet people whilst out from a safe distance and independently so he can make acquaintances for himself in his community” – Sarah Platt, Senior Activity Facilitator
The impact of Andrew’s independent walks has been recognised by his family members: “Andrew really enjoys going out and looks forward to you coming, knowing he has someone nearby on his walks has really boosted his confidence; it also gives us a chance for a walk too. Thank you” – Family member
