Does anybody think 'support workers' are good at their jobs? No. So I call them lackeys.
After this fiasco that happened before, I quit my prior support company and ended up losing my house too, since they were in charge of the accommodation that I was in a few years ago. Now since the ordeal involved getting into trouble over women, and I'm under court supervision these days, the social services won't give me female support workers at other agencies. They also keep saying that they are limited too because there are more women than men that work in this profession.
They are also trying to dictate what the support is to be used for. They were only able to find me 6 hours before with 2 guys at another company, and the supervisor I have tried to use the guys as stool pigeons (spies) and I was having none of it. He knew they were helping me because the social worker knows about my legal requirements and has to tell the supervisor about any changes.
I had aspired to be an actor, or even just an extra. There are casting calls for short student films all the time, yet the social worker who has to get the funding arranged for the support, moans that helpers going with me to acting stuff is not real support. So how the heck is it not?
