"The Steps to Work programme has really helped to build on my confidence and the support that I have been given throughout the programme has made everything so easy. I wouldn’t be able to do it without the support. 

World Museum, Liverpool, was my first placement where I had to hand out leaflets and floor maps to visitors and check in the schools. My work coach stayed with me the whole of the first day and then slowly backed away to allow me to be independent once again. I already had a level of independence and confidence but needed a bit of reassuring; not now!”

“The plan to open Strawberry Field to the public for the first time - so people can see a unique exhibition about the home, how and why the song was written by John, and allow visitors to explore the grounds as John did as a child - is very exciting.”
