About Down's Syndrome : Amy

My name is Amy.  I work as a Café Assistant at the Home Café.

I am a volunteer.  I am on a 12 week volunteer placement.amy_hcc2

I work with Lucy. Lucy says I am doing really well.

My mum is very proud of me.  My mum says my confidence has improved since I’ve been working here.

I like working here. I serve food and drinks to customers.   I make different flavoured teas and I make toasties.


I wash up and when I clean the tables I have to spray them and wipe them carefully.

I like chatting to customers and like to see the babies. I like people and like to help people.

I hope I will stay on at the café after my  placement.
