Text of the Petition

After two years of hard, challenging yet rewarding support from my support worker I am today studying at University whilst living a life fuelled by lots of love, hope, happiness and laughter. I'm working to put myself in a position to provide a good life for my family.  My support worker is still my daily affirmation to 'Live my Dreams'.

The post is funded by the Supporting People Programme.  Without the programme me and my family wouldn't have had that life changing and life-saving support.

I would like the whole of Wales to know what Supporting People money does and I call upon our Welsh Government to continue to support and commit to protect it in future, so that thousands of people in Wales will get the same kind of life-saving support I received.

 I'm grateful for the Supporting People Programme, it helped save my life. If you want to ensure that the same support will always be available to others, please sign my petition.
