Sarah's story

Sarah's story

Sarah has a mild learning disability and Asperger’s syndrome. “Since I’ve been in my own home, I feel I’ve achieved so much. I’ve managed to build up a social network, I’m confident enough to travel to nearby places on my own by train or bus, which was something I could not do when I first moved away.” Jackie describes the change in her daughter as “monumental”: “Shared ownership brings people into the community and their support needs may not eventually be so high because they’re happier in their own space, and a lot can flow from that.”
