WHAT OUR YOUNG PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY
Having someone else to talk to and being able to turn to people who understood or might have been in the same situation.
I’ve got my own house now, that I pay for, it’s a house share but I pay around £700 a month, as obviously I’ve got a job now, so I’ve been living there for about five months now, before that I was living with my mates Nan and Grandad, they helped me and I paid them rent. I stayed with them for about six months, but obviously now that I’ve got a job again, a decent job, I can live by myself.
They were very supportive and helped me a lot. They obviously made sure that I had somewhere to stay, and then kept checking in on me to make sure that it was going well with everything

They can help more than you think
They can help straight away, support you and they make you feel safe.
Staff are very supportive and treat everyone equally

M did a really good job of making me feel welcome, she made meals for me and was understanding
