Shelley had infantile spasms as a baby and has grown up with a learning disability.
Now in her early 40s she continues to live at home with her parents, Tony and Sue, who are in their 70s. She works part time in a charity shop and has a wide range of hobbies and favourite pastimes, including walking their two dogs. She is also a keen swimmer and enjoys art, doing jigsaws, shopping and carriage driving.
Her parents’ hopes of finding a suitable long-term home for Shelley are becoming increasingly urgent. Tony says “Somewhere like the JPK Project would provide an ideal home for Shelley, giving her opportunities to continue to develop her confidence and live with the support she needs when we’re no longer able to provide that.”
