Walking along the water’s edge of Sydney’s iconic Darling Harbour, Paula’s face lights up with a smile that spreads from ear to ear.

With one-to-one support from her Afford Belmore Community Centre lifestyle assistant, Paula can do the things she loves and explore more of the city she calls home.

Paula is a friendly and outgoing woman. She loves getting out and about and meeting new people. It was her wish to go to Darling Harbour in Sydney to take in all that the city has to offer.

Together with her support person, Paula walked along the International Convention Centre forecourt to take a photo or two in front of the giant bauble – a six-metre Christmas decoration that lights up in an array of colour.

Keeping with the Christmas theme, Paula loved seeing the huge Christmas presents decorated with silver ribbons and pinks stars along the Harborside forecourt.

Then it was time for some morning tea. With so many lovely cafes to choose from, the pair settled on one and enjoyed a delicious snack. Paula chose a chocolate brownie. Yum!

Paula loved being among all the people, the sounds of the city and having the support to do something that truly makes her happy.

At Afford, individual choice is respected. One-to-one support offers individuals the chance to have support if and when they need it to learn more about the world around them, connect with the community and experience something new.
