Since 2014, Damien has been supported by one of our Progression Workers to improve his independence. Since then, Damien has made very significant progress, regaining mobility and becoming more confident. In the final week of our support package, he ordered an adults tricycle, which will allow him to travel independently around Ipswich and to go to attend the gym regularly. Damien is currently training to do a row-athon to raise money for charity.
The day Damien collected his tricycle he rode 1.5 miles home with his Progression Worker, Ed, running alongside. Since then he has ridden every day.
Ed said 'We are immensely proud of Damien; he is a true testament to what a determined-attitude and tenacious spirit can achieve".
Ed said "he has that never give up attitude towards everything"
