Timmy's apartment living

For many years Tim has lived in a variety of shared living arrangements. All of those shared the common feature of overnight staff presence. Through our person centred planning process and through us providing information on different options available to Tim, he decided that he would like to try something different to shared living space and dependence on continuous staff presence.

Andy's Move

"This is something I wanted for a long time and I was delighted to be moving. I really liked the area. Since moving, I have two new housemates who I get on with very well. I live across the road from where my day supports are and around the corner from St. Pat's football club. I can head off to matches now so I am delighted. The local shop is nice for coffee"
