Barry, who has a level of learning difficulty, joined ROAD as he wanted to make more meaningful use of his time.
After meeting with ROAD Health Trainer FAYE, she discovered he had a passion for cookery and baking, along with artistic talents.
To help Barry create a local support network, and help Barry make the most of his passion for art and food, Faye arranged for him to attend an art club and take part in a Level 2 Food Safety in Catering course at a local community centre.
As Barry felt his learning difficulties would hold him back from completing the course, Faye also went along to make sure he understood the principles.
He passed and is now on his way to working in the catering industry!
