Citizen Journey:

Alex Clarke is from Chesterfield and for the last 6 months has been accessing Portland Freedom’s Day Service, 5 days a week.

Alex says; “My favourite things about Portland Freedom’s Day Service are the opportunities to make new friends, socialising and the opportunity to access computers and the internet.”

“I feel very supported by the staff running the Day Service, they are very friendly and make me feel extremely welcome every day. Members of staff look after us all, help and sort all of our activities out, such as; walking, bingo and swimming at a local facility.

“They also encourage us to try new and different things, which have helped me to push my personal boundaries.”

Thank you so much for taking such great care of our daughter this last year. We were able to relax knowing she was with people who care about her
