    Just looked in to wish you good luck. Hope this works. You are advertising also on the usual homefinder, buddy sites? Your idea seems good, it's great to break out of the box!

    Hi @mollymandy97. Thanks for reaching out to us.

    It sounds really difficult that you were previously in supported living but didn’t work out. Would you like to tell us more about this?

    Hopefully, you can find someone like the description you have outlined. Is there anything, in particular, that might help you to find someone like this?

    Please don’t hesitate to let us know if we can do anything to support you. We are all here for you and listening to you  :)

    I've lost hope at this point I've tried tender in and out of County my social worker came told we try again but I'm never gonna get level of support and type of care in supported living which I'm getting now I can't live by myself because won't pay the night support or package. Nor do what to council can't match me because that service only exists for Learning disability. I've Cp with no LD
