Meet Blake, one of our seasoned support workers at Assist Community, bringing almost 3 years of dedication to the team. Formerly a labourer, Blake made a career shift to connect with people on a more personal level, finding fulfilment in the ever-changing nature of support work.
When not on duty, Blake can be found immersed in various activities, from watching sports to hitting the gym, enjoying bush walks, or simply indulging in his love for music – always sporting his unmistakable Rabbitohs merchandise.
Curious about his time-travel desires, we asked Blake about a specific moment he'd revisit. His choice? The era of pyramid construction, driven by a keen interest in understanding the builders and the process.
When questioned about his motivations, Blake expressed, "My family and the desire to be better" – a testament to his commitment to personal growth.
Blake's journey exemplifies that anyone, regardless of background, can make the leap into support work. He encourages others not to fear change and to take the chance, as it might lead to unexpected love for the job. Blake is proof that a career in support work can be a rewarding adventure, no matter where life initially takes you.
