MOVING HOUSE: JULIE
Before moving to a new supported housing development on Leigh Road, Julie lived with her parents for 50 years:
"When I first saw [Leigh Road] I was a little bit nervous. I couldn’t talk to anyone at first. I liked meeting my support workers before I moved in. My key worker is amazing. I like my support workers. It’s really important I get on well with them. We just clicked together.
It’s changed my life forever. It’s a dream come true. I do bowling at Finsbury Park, go swimming and do Pedal Power and gardening. I have made a lot of friends. I’ve learnt to wash my clothes and cook. I taught the other tenants how to play snooker. I was nervous showing my mum around; she cried because she was proud."
