“Two years ago I was living in a shared flat, where I did not have much personal space and the people I lived with took advantage of me.
Trident Reach helped me move into my own flat and I have an appointee who looks after my money so my bills are paid and I don’t get into debt. My support worker has helped me make new friends too.
I recently lost my girlfriend and staff from Reach helped me make a memorial garden at Bramble Close, which I take care of.
My support worker helped me enrol at college and I now have a City & Guilds qualification. I have also done lots of fun activities like clay pigeon shooting and crazy golf, and I’m really looking forward to trying new ones.”
