Angus’ story

Angus' quality of life has improved greatly since living in supported housing.

“Moving into sheltered housing has made such a difference to me. Emotionally it has made me feel secure and given me some stability. People are around me and I feel supported

Physically I am now eating properly, taking my medication and exercising. I am more relaxed, my sleeping habits have changed and I feel more energised. Mentally I am more positive about my life now, more self assured and confident.

If you are considering a similar move – do it! It improves your quality of life, you do not feel alone any more, you know someone is there to listen to you and support you.”

Help raise awareness

Thousands of people have gained their independence through supported housing. The Starts at Home campaign aims to ensure that people who need extra support will always have a home that meets their needs.
