Lucy has been supported by KEYFORT for 8 years now, initially accessing Education support at University where she achieved both a Degree and Masters in French. Lucy also needs some support at home and to access the community which meant that she has always had one team of staff working with her to provide a mix of the support types she needs which works best for her, having people on her team that she knows well and gets on great with.
Lucy also had support for a placement year in France where two members of her team were lucky enough to join her on this fantastic opportunity to support her to attend University at …. and learn some French along the way too.
Lucy then joined the KEYFORT team as a Specialist Mentor after her studies and did some fantastic work supporting others with disabilities studying at College and University. She now works in a College, and accesses employment support with KEYFORT in areas such as note taking, typing up dictated information and practical aspects around the workplace to help in a very fast paced work environment. Lucy is planning a holiday with support from KEYFORT and has just bought her own first home, which KEYFORT will support her in this exciting new chapter.
What Students have said about us:
“I just wanted to say thank you so much. I have received incredible support throughout my final year of university. We have covered a wide variety of academic improvements, from specific essay structures to reviewing and managing a whole dissertation. A key focus has been on improving my organisational skills. As I am dyslexic, it’s easy for life to get all over the place; however, I now feel considerably more organised and less overwhelmed. With this, my planning skills before and during assignments have transformed. This, in turn, has led me to be able to achieve high first grades at university, which I simply didn’t think were achievable. I have learnt how to maximise my skills and enable me to use my dyslexia to an advantage which is a crucial skill I will take with me into the future. The passion my support worker had for helping and improving my thinking is extremely admirable and I couldn’t have felt more supported….. I am so grateful……. I shall miss my sessions a lot. “
