About Down's Syndrome : Pete

pete standing in front of building

My name is Pete. I am 35. I have lived in my own house for 14 years.

I have my own support workers who take me out and about most days in the week.

I can’t travel on my own and I find money hard to understand, so I need help to go shopping.

I have lots of hobbies. I like to go out to eat, spend time with friends and family, watch DVDs about animals and listen to music. I like to play Frisbee, basketball and football and I love cars.

I enjoy being more independent and having my own life. But I need a lot of help. My family and support workers help me a lot.

I find change hard, so the best thing for me is to keep my daily routines and do things I enjoy every day.
