I really enjoyed my time as a resident in the Homes of Hope house in Northenden. It gave me a safe and secure environment in which to reside in. The love and care shown to me by staff, volunteers and visitors to the house was overwhelming and means a great deal to me. I was allowed my own space when required but was also encouraged to grow and flourish. Knowing my failures were not going to be judged was good, and my successes were championed. Helping me believe in myself and what I can achieve with some help and guidance is life changing and I have hope for the future that I’ll go from strength to strength.
