Emily, Jo and Laurence live together in a house in Staffordshire leased by a housing association from a private landlord. They have been friends since childhood.
We got in contact with one of the housing associations we work with to see if they could help. The local authority agreed to work with the housing association to provide accommodation for Emily, Jo and Laurence. We helped to assess what they needed and made sure the housing association knew what type of property to look for.
The home we found, a dormer bungalow with a converted loft space, includes:
a large hallway
a large living room
a kitchen/dining area
an office/sleep-in room for staff
a utility room.
It also features a good-sized rear garden – where, in 2018, Emily, Jo and Laurence held a party to celebrate five years in their own home.
We had a dedicated member of staff who looked at a range of properties and made sure everyone was kept involved throughout the process. Emily, Jo and Laurence love their home and their parents are really impressed by what has been delivered.
