Moving From Supported Housing to Independent Accommodation – Susy’s Story

Living independently is something most of us take for granted. Maybe we got our first taste at university, or when we were earning enough to share a house with friends. Many of the people we work with at Bedfordshire Supported Housing, however, have difficulties reaching the goal of independent living, and so when they do achieve it, we always enjoy celebrating with them. Susy has experienced residential care as part of her treatment for ongoing mental ill-health. From there she moved into supported care as a stepping-stone to living in independent accommodation. As she prepares to make that leap, we asked if she could write an account of her journey with us.
