Robert’s story: From school to independent living

Student stars in theatre production
Robert stars in theatre production Oliver.

Robert is leaving the Orpheus Centre this year where he has gained qualifications in drama, music technology and performing arts.  He is moving to supported living accommodation in Crawley where he will be living as independently as possible and managing his own future. He has long held a desire to work in theatre and will continue to engage with Freewheelers and StageRight as an aspiring actor. He recently performed in the West End production of Orpheus the Mythical.  Robert is keen to integrate with his new community and this will be facilitated through his support provider and the ‘Out There’ programme ran by Dimensions. The programme runs sessions every day with different pursuits that will help with Robert’s personal health and fitness following on from his successful involvement in wellbeing activities at Orpheus.
