My name is Anthony, I have been supported by Ordinary Lifestyles for 10 years. I share my house with Dorothy, and we get on really well. I enjoy helping her out and making her laugh. I like my support workers; they take me to the tattooists and other activities that I do like drama where I’m learning to act.

I enjoy socialising with my friends and family. When I’m at home I enjoy looking after the house, doing the housework, watching tv and talking to my staff and housemate. I’ve just bought a dartboard that we keep outside and I’m enjoying practising. I also love listening to music and looking at history books. I’ve got my own ‘phone and I ring my girlfriend and family most days to keep in touch with them.
