My name is Max and before I came to the Orpheus Centre I lived at home with my mum and my sister.

I came to the Orpheus Centre because I want to be a voice actor and I hoped I would improve my talents. I have enjoyed art and creating things.

I have become more independent since arriving at the Centre - shopping, cooking and house keeping with Dom Care support.

My ambition is to be a voice actor in Thomas and Friends. Through Orpheus I got work experience with a radio station called Ridge Radio.

Living at Orpheus has prepared me for life outside.

If you would like to help young people like Max to create a more independent life through the performing arts you can donate to Orpheus or fundraise with us.
