The Rogers family

With the help of our Occupational Therapist and some adaptation work, Emma's home has been transformed to give her daughter Courtney, who was born with chronic disabilities, much more independence.


Image

Linda

Linda admits she'd always had clutter around her. She joined our hoarding programme, run by Mind BLMK, which motivated her and helped her change the way she thinks about her belongings.

Image

David

Once a care home with residents sharing communal living space, this supported living scheme in St Albans was given a modern refurbishment, meaning David now has his own front door and private space to watch his favourite films.

The Ball family

Kaysey and Andrew are full-time carers to their profoundly disabled daughters. With their home no longer fit for purpose, we're working with the local authority to build a bespoke house, adapted to suit their needs.

Image

Helen

A family member’s hoarding issues on top of a bereavement left Helen feeling overwhelmed. Embarrassed about the state of her home, Helen didn’t expect to be offered help from our Wellbeing & Support team.


Image

Harry

Harry lives in one of our supported schemes in Milton Keynes, having previously lived with his parents. He loves having his own place, because he can watch what he wants on TV and play his music louder.


Image

Kara

Kara moved from a women’s refuge into her own home with her son, but soon found herself hiding away. Our Wellbeing & Support team stepped in and helped Kara to find her self-confidence again.


Image

Sian

Single mum Sian couldn't afford to rent privately while she was studying, so was house-sharing to keep costs down. She didn’t expect to quality for social housing, but was delighted when her bid on a new build village home was accepted.


Image

Jonathan and Nichola

Jonathan and Nicola's rented house just wasn't big enough for their growing family. They'd been saving to buy their own home and, through shared ownership, they were able to take their first step on the property ladder, in the village they grew up in.

Jeannie

Jeannie had lost her job and her self confidence, and with no income, was facing homelessness. With her physical and mental health declining, she was delighted to be offered the tenancy of a bungalow.


Image

Ghislaine

Ghislaine was private renting after her divorce, and her savings were starting to dwindle. She thought shared ownership was a good idea, but didn’t know if it was possible at her age.


Image

Robert, Daniel and Frank

Robert, Daniel and Frank all have various learning difficulties and have lived together for many years. They moved into their more spacious Grand Union home in 2018 and now they’re more relaxed, happier and more independent.


Image

Bob and Marion

Bob and Marion thought they might miss living in the city, but their two bedroomed shared ownership apartment in a picturesque village has given them a real sense of community.


Image

Angie

Angie was looking for stability, but didn’t have an income that would allow a full mortgage. She decided on a shared ownership house that’s surrounded by countryside, and loves it!


Image

Jordan and Amber

Jordan and Amber were priced out of the normal housing market, but with Jordan being in the military, they were happy to find out they received priority on buying a shared ownership property.
