Adam is part of his community

Like many of the people we support, Adam’s person centred support plan focuses on maximising his independence, and ensuring that he is able to continue to do the things he loves, as well as explore new hobbies and experiences. Adam is passionate about helping others and enjoys spending time in his local community.

Adam is part of the team at ADM Nurseries and has become an expert at potting plants up ready to sell to customers.

Adam says: “My time at the nursery makes me feel like I’m reconnecting with nature at the same time as learning new skills.”

Dean, owner of ADM nurseries says: “Adam is a tremendous help at the nursery, he happily gets involved with all of the work that we do here. I’m glad to say he’s part of our team.”

Adam has taken the knowledge and experience of gardening that he’s picked up whilst volunteering at ADM and used it to grow his own vegetables at his home.

He’s also used his skills to help his friend Brenda tidy up her garden and make it a more accessible and inviting place to spend time with her dog. Adam is keen to share his enjoyment of nature with others, and is happy that he can use his expertise to help Brenda to get outside.

Adam was introduced to Brenda by mirus’ Co-Production Lead Rachel, who through her collaborative work with the Cinnamon Trust, met Brenda who needed assistance walking her dog due to a health condition. Rachel knew that Adam was a dog lover and as they live local to each other, she introduced them. Brenda, Adam, and dog Pugsy hit it off straight away, and after a few weeks visiting Brenda with his mirus Support Worker, Adam decided to catch the bus and meet Brenda unsupported. These unsupported visits were a great boost to Adam’s independence and meant that he could be more flexible around Brenda’s treatment.

Adam says: “I visited Brenda unsupported because walking her dog had to fit around her treatment, so it was the only day I could do it.”

Adam also volunteers at MAWS Charity shop in Maesteg, where he assists with cleaning and sorting donations of previously owned items ready to sell to customers.

Linda who also volunteers at MAWS thinks that Adam is a fantastic asset to the shop due to his helpful nature and lovely, warm character.
