    Hello @nightwars How are you today?

    I can't see there being any barriers to you both living together.  Is there anything in-particular you are worried about?  If you can let us know, we'll be able to help :)

    HI,

    If you have a Social Worker then it would also be worth speaking to them regarding this and they will be able to help answer any questions you have,

    Hi @nightwars

    I spoke with my colleague about this more and found out that unfortunately some supported living companies don't allow people to live with each other, and that it varies from company to company.  I really hope you can live together, but please let us know if you come up against any problems so we can support you.  

    Good luck :)
