Hi, my name is Andrew Oswin and I work part-time for Parent to Parent Greater Canterbury, which is located at the Christchurch Community House. I have nearly been involved with them for five years now since 2015 to the present day and I enjoy what I am doing.
Some of my work involves:
This has given me great opportunities to network and to work with other communities for a disability organisation in the disabilities sector. I really would like to see other people with Down syndrome (like me for instance) to get into the workforce, to be paid and having a job. I used to attend a daybase once in my teenager years, but I experienced stress then. I now feel a bit calmer and more relaxed adapting to changes with new workplaces and bosses after the earthquakes.
In my future I would like to continue working with Parent to Parent until I reach retirement age. I enjoy my job very much and what I value from it is having plenty of experiences, opportunities, coming into work on Thursday and learning something new each day.
