“My name is Austin, and I live in Lurgan. I receive support from Praxis Care staff who have helped me to manage my flat. When I moved here, I was supported to pay the rent, obtain benefits, furnish my flat, and organise the various parts of my everyday life. Visits from staff also helped me break down the isolation and provide moral support, and someone to talk to.
I found the support from everyone helped build my confidence and with encouragement I have been able to speak at training sessions and tell others my own personal story. I have even been on the radio talking about my favourite place in the world, my flat in Lurgan.
I have been supported to become more independent, and to enjoy my life, which I wouldn’t have been able to do without the support from Praxis Care.”
The Supporting People funded service in Lurgan supports twenty-one individuals with housing-related support needs to manage all aspects of everyday living.
