David has lived in Eastbourne all his life and is an active member of the local Special Olympics Group, with the standing long jump and 100m being favourite events. He attends the Bourne Free youth club, goes 10-pin bowling every week, and trains and takes part in football competitions with the Albion in the Community Special Needs Football. At the weekend he’s a familiar face at Eastbourne Borough Football Club with his dad Cliff. They rarely miss a game.
According to his parents, Maureen & Cliff, “We think the JPK Project could offer suitable accommodation for David, providing an environment that will allow him to further his independence.”
We think he could also benefit considerably from having friends at the Project who he can socialise with. Although it will be a massive change for him, with his growing confidence we do feel he’s ready to move on and remaining in Eastbourne will enable him to continue with all his interests and still have his family nearby to whom he’s very close.”
