Personal Assistant


I am a lady living in the Canton area of Cardiff. I have Cerebral Palsy, so I need assistance to live the life I want to lead. I have a speech impairment, which means sometimes it is difficult to understand me. I am always willing to repeat myself. I need someone who is lively and fun to be around. A person with a bright bubbly personality is the most important thing.

I like going to the cinema, pubs and clubs, eating out and shopping! I also enjoy going on the Internet.

Because I need personal care, my Personal Assistant must be female, and exemption is claimed under Section 7(2)(b) of the Sex Discrimination Act 1975.
