“Andrew is a fantastic asset to our organisation with his positive, bubbly and caring attitude.  He is a volunteer any organisation would love to have as part of their team.” Stacey Dowding, Coordinator, Dale Cottages.

Delivering the local community newspaper around his suburb and volunteering at Dale Cottages, an aged care facility located in Armadale, are just some of the jobs that Andrew and his Identitywa support worker, Kayla, do together each week.

Andrew has taken on a number of different jobs over the years, including washing rubbish bins and cleaning buses.  He definitely likes his current jobs better!

“I like meeting people,” says Andrew.  “It is fun to be independent and do things away from home.”

He and Kayla spend time folding the Comment Newspaper before they walk the streets to deliver it.  They then travel to Dale Cottages where they distribute Meals on Wheels to the residents.

Andrew’s mum, Liz, is very happy with the way Andrew’s confidence has grown since being supported by Identitywa.

“Identitywa has opened new and interesting opportunities for Andrew including the chance to contribute to the local community,” shares Liz.   “The support staff are exceptional. Every interaction we have had with Identitywa has been with friendly people who are eager to help Andrew reach his individual and unique goals.”

For Andrew, life is good.  In addition to spending fun times with his niece and nephew, interacting with other people and earning money from his paper delivery are a real bonus.
