JULIE WARD, 21 forever, CDS Support Worker

Time in role – Nearly 6 years with CDS and 16 years in the industry

What do you like the most about CDS and your role? Socialising with staff and clients without a doubt. I love the social aspect of the role.

Why are you working in this industry? I enjoy helping people. It gives me a lot of satisfaction.

What is the greatest myth in this industry? Perceptions are changing so I don’t know if there is any myths nowadays. There is more acceptance of disability by the public and that has come about through exhaustive education to the general public.

If you weren’t in this industry what would you be doing? Agriculture – more specifically the grain industry.

If you were CEO for a day what would you change? Ensure everyone works closer together and collaborates more.
