Home in Norwich NR3, living with a friend.


I am a young woman with Cerebral Palsy who has just graduated with a degree in English Literature with Creative Writing. I am an extravert with friends but otherwise I’m more than happy to get in my PJ’s and watch a film or read in bed. I strive to teach abled-bodied people that disabled people are just normal people and I love educating people on my disability so if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

I love doing my makeup (particularly the look on their faces when I tell them I did it myself!) I have a wicked sense of humour so if in doubt, I’m joking. I’m very independent but support like this is crucial if I want to have any energy at the end of the day. As I mainly need help with personal care, I am only looking for a female P.A.
