About This is Me Agency

In 2019, our director and founder Michelle set out to create a new business that would support and enable people with chronic illnesses, disabilities, and barriers to work.

Having been a support worker herself, Michelle had seen the Access To Work programme in action, and saw the difference it could make to people's lives.

With this in mind, This Is Me Agency was born – to empower clients to reach their full potential, help clients gain meaningful support and create a great network of clients and support workers in the process.

  • Understanding

    Understanding the challenges clients face, approach everything we do with empathy and compassion.

  • Drive

    Determined that each client has the potential for success and are driven to support people to achieve that potential.
