Watch: Beattie's story
Beattie knew she wanted her independence and was ready to move out of the family home and into a more independent living environment, something she found with Lifeways at St Thomas House in North Walsham.
Despite her parent’s initial concerns, they were also filled with a great deal of hope for the new start and how positive moving to adult services would be for Beattie.
Beattie’s mum Maxine said, “Beattie got to choose her flat, and the service manager at St Thomas House was available to talk through anything we needed to know, and kept in touch with us all the way through the process.”
“Beattie is just so much happier here. She’s developing her life skills including cleaning, washing up, and all those things you think your child is never going to do. There are so many other young people who could really benefit from this kind of place.”
