Suffolk Independent Living have been established since 2007 and are run as a service by the Norfolk Coalition of Disabled People. We provide services to people considering or already receiving Direct Payments or those who are in need of support to live independently and choose to employ their own staff to assist with this aim.

Initially I was the Admin and Communications Officer, where I provided support for the advisers in the office. Now I am a Independent Living Adviser working two days a week as I attend college part time. In my spare time, I go to the gym and like to run. I also enjoy watching films and going on walks.
