Kathy is a volunteer and member of SCIL’s Management Committee………..
‘I have now moved into my own flat, as I wanted to be more independent and I am really enjoying the experience. I have now got my own key and can control my own life.
The flat that I have is run in conjunction with Hyde Housing and Southampton City Council. The project is up to 2 years and during this period, I have to look for other accommodation with the help of a support worker from Hyde.
The flat has got a bedroom, lounge, kitchen and a very big bathroom. It has got a communal garden and I am very happy.’
Kathy hopes that by sharing her story, it will inspire other Disabled People to think about living independently.
