Soccer-loving teenager Joshua has been registered with Avivo for Family Support funding since May 2017.

Family Support funding was used by the family to support Josh to attend his soccer club and swimming lessons. He is an active young man and loves to socialise with his peers.

The funds have provided him with opportunities to connect with others and develop his understanding of working in a team. The activities also help with his coordination and strength.

His parents have engaged a support person to take Josh to some of these classes and allow Mum to spend time with her other son. This has been invaluable to her and her relationship with Joshua’s younger brother.

Josh recently attended the Special Olympics and his Mum sent an email of appreciation.
