One of our TCS support workers, Amy, tells us what an average shift can look like: 

“More often than not, my working days are very varied. It keeps my role very exciting. My colleagues and I will take the client out for breakfast in the morning, and then we will usually spend a few hours, if not the full day, trying a fun activity. We always take him out for fun activities such as swimming, water parks, and walks on the beach. It’s great to witness this kind of happiness and see him grow as a person. No day is the same or boring, and that's something I really love about my role.” 

- Amy, TCS support worker
