Moving out of my parents' home
Moving from the family home is a big step for anyone. For Emily, it was a great opportunity to become more independent, whilst still having the support she needs and friends to live with.
"I live here with 2 other girls. I met one of them at college. We have fun living together and sometimes we have parties here.”
We provide round the clock support for Emily and her two house-mates. This includes accompanying Emily to work, though she is independent once there. “I have two jobs. They are both in cafés. I take the orders and take the drinks and food to the tables. I really enjoy working.”
I’m glad I have a support worker. I can’t go on the bus on my own and I need help with money. Emily
