Mark is a local resident in the City of Swan. He is the full-time carer of his 76-year-old dad (Raymond) living at home. They are avid members of the Swan Districts Football Club in Bassendean. In 2020 Mark was linked in with an employment agency and enrolled for his Cert 3 in Individual Support (Ageing, Disability). As we know, early in the year we were all affected by Covid 19. He persevered, finishing his theory and then later in the year managed to successfully complete his practical placement. All while carefully negotiating respite for dad, and some time for himself.
In January 2021, he received his certificate - a celebration of his determination, endurance and passion to get education with the possibility of future work. The Rise Team would like to sincerely congratulate him in his achievement and may his efforts inspire others to show that where there's a will, there's a way. Well done Mark!
