I came to OPENhouse in need of settled accommodation. I am currently on an Apprenticeship, but was finding it a little difficult due to being unsettled. Regardless of this I always manage to get up early to travel to my apprenticeship every day.
There was a slight problem in the house at first as I was finding it difficult to sleep, due to the coming and goings of other residents, and asked to move to the ground floor. The support workers did this and I started getting proper nights sleep and regained my enthusiasm for my apprenticeship.
I did so well in the house that it was decided that I would be offered a move on up to one of the OPENhouse flats, where I would be living a bit more independently. I moved and am doing really well both living more independently and in my apprenticeship, “I have my own place and no one to disturb me when I am studying for my exam for my placement”.
