Theme: ‘Your Support’

My Supports by Chris Bodley

My supports at Moe Life Skills are the staff members.  They all help me with my work and any problems I may have.
Mum and Dad also help me with my problems and my work.
I can also talk to my sisters about any problems that I may have.

My Support by Georgia Green

I have support from my family
And Interchange in Gippsland
And Moe Life Skills Centre staff
And the Salvation Army Church
And Latrobe City Council
Support is about getting connected with people
It is being friendly kind and respectful…….To me
I made bracelets for my support worker’s children
They made loom bands for me
They are like little strings
They made me happy
They were nice to put on my bag

My Support by Andrew Prior

I have good support.
Moe life skills helps me. My support workers from there are Sarah, Abby, Ash and Majella.
Zoey, Paul and Anthony at Valid help me with Self Advocacy, so I can have my say.
My sister Julie and Geoff care and support me at home.
I’m lucky.
