Pushing the limits

Posted on: 18th October 2018

Support worker, Louis Wong, wins the ‘Pushing the Limits’ category in the Calvert Trust’s photography competition

Louis took his winning photograph in 2017, when he supported our client Alfie to go water-skiing at Knaresborough.

“I’ve been working with Alfie as a support worker for about 2½ years,” says Louis. “It can be a really fun job, because I get to do all these activities with him.”

Support workers can make a huge difference to people who have complex needs. Sarah Bell, Alfie’s case manager, says, “Alfie would not have participated in any physical or challenging activities without his support workers. He suffers from anxiety about being out in the community and doing activities, so there are certain psychological and sensory strategies that the support workers help him with. They help with planning, encouragement, guidance - every step of the way.”

“I’ve always been interested in film and photography,” says Louis. He has this in common with Alfie, who is a keen photographer and a film fan - just one of the things that make Louis a great support worker for Alfie.

Louis has won a free multi-activity stay for 4 people at the Lake District Calvert Trust.
