Chairperson/service manager at Bournemouth Mencap
Carer for Bournemouth Borough council
We found Lydia to be dynamic, enthusiastic, engaging and fun. The activities were appropriate for the group (adults 18+) and were fun without being childish. She brought lots of different skills and ideas and worked with the group to incorporate their ideas into the session.
She was prompt, professional and had great communication with both staff and members.
Lydia's classes were always imaginative, great fun and highly engaging! Lydia always managed to include all of the clients despite their different abilities, and they all loved her warm personality!
Drama club (SpOt Drama) is AMAZING and AWESOME apparently! Doesn't stop talking about it on the drive home in the car!

I have nothing but praise for the amazing and talented Lydia! The relationship she has with the young people she works with; the warm, accepting and inclusive environment she fosters; the fun, engaging activities she delivers; the energy and positive approach to everything she does. She really is a gem and I'm absolutely delighted she is working in the field she is.
