Matthew Dear – Kairos Community Trust

Matt Dear, our recently-appointed complex-needs support worker, reports that as a result of referrals from colleagues in the Kairos move-on team, the two houses reserved for men and women with complex needs are full, with a total of 10 residents.

Matt’s new office on the ground floor of Linden Grove has just been refurbished by Denis Walsh, our maintainence manager. “It’s a terrific room – light and quiet, just behind the dining-room,” says Matt. “It allows me to give clients both space and time as we work on their individual support plans together.”
