About Down's Syndrome : Robert

Down's syndrome

My name is Robert.  I live in South East England and I’ve lived here for over 5 years. I have my own flat and love it here. I do the cleaning and put the washing out and I do my ironing and I do the hoovering.
I like to go swimming as well and I do competitions every year and I have medals for this, and I go to a disco in the town. I go to a drama group and I work in Sue Ryder. I like singing and do competitions at the nearby pub and I go bowling and I am starting horse riding.

I get to see my family at Christmas time and I am at college as well and I practice singing.
