Zoe lifeways moving in boyfriend

Zoe’s in her twenties. She’s been living in her own home in our supported living service in Bolton, Greater Manchester for over six years.

In that time, Zoe’s been growing in confidence – and now feels able to take the next step: to leave the supported living service to move in with her boyfriend, Alex.

Deciding to take this next step cautiously, Zoe first stayed over at her boyfriend’s house for a two-week ‘trial run’ before deciding to move in permanently.

‘They are amazing’

Zoe has many fond memories of her time at the supported living service.

“The support team have helped me through a lot- from accompanying me on day trips to Blackpool and Southport, to helping me with my shopping, making me brews and always being there for me - like the time when I injured my knee," Zoe says. “They are amazing and lovely.”

Zoe likes to stay active and get involved with charities, including Stand Up Sisters, a women’s mental health group. She’s also volunteered at Bolton Hospice, British Heart Foundation and Barnardo’s.

“They [the support team] have worked with me on my confidence to go out and do these things,” Zoe adds.  “I couldn’t have done it without my support team.”

Now Zoe’s moving on, the team at Lifeways are confident that she’s ready to take this next step towards independence.

“She is loving life,” says Tara, Zoe’s team leader. Zoe’s now handed in her notice at the service for the end of this month. 

It’s sad to see you go, Zoe – but congratulations on the move!
