Building new friendships and learning new skills with Your Supports

David smiling with headphones around his neckDavid has been with Connects for around 10 years and is really enjoying the tailored, flexible support he receives from Your Supports to participant in drama, music and larping.

When asked about the music activity David said “I have been doing music for all of my life and now I have incorporated guitar in my music. I hope to become a lot better as my eyes have been opened to see what I can do like playing guitar as well as singing. I never used to play a code in a guitar but now I am doing a few songs including Spanish classic guitar. I have been in many different types of bands and wrote a few songs.

Larping or sword craft is another activity that David does with the help of the Your Supports team.  David said “It is just a way of being someone, as you can be a wizard, night anchor or ranger, as well as dressing up in really awesome gear. I used to love playing with plastic swords as a kid. I love the period of wars especially when my team is on the upper hand. My team leader has been impressed with some improvements I have made so far. The physical demand of the activity has helped me to lose a bit of weight.”
