Education Support

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.
