ConnectAbility recognise that everyone should be in charge of their lives, to live as independently as possible and to achieve their goals and dreams.

ConnectAbility understands that for some adults with a disability there is a desire to move out of the family home and to assume the same responsibilities as other adults. This need for independence can go hand in hand with nervousness about how they will manage.

That is why ConnectAbility is offering people who may find it difficult to locate and access suitable accommodation the chance to "try before they buy".

Have you ever rented and found yourself sharing with someone who is so different from you that you just don't get along - then this is an opportunity for you to meet and get to know your house mates. You could use the rent you save to buy some new furnishings, technology or to take a short holiday before you move in permanently.

The staff from ConnectAbility will work with you to achieve your individual goals.

Just like Mark, who wanted to live on his own in the community but first he needed to learn new skills such as cooking and budgeting.

He lived in Supported Independent Living until he felt confident enough to move into his own home in the community.

His family and the staff who had supported him were just as proud of his achievement as Mark was on the day he achieved his dream.

ConnectAbility would love to talk to you about the opportunities they currently have that could see you realising your dream of living independently.
