Hi, my name is Jessica and since moving into Supported Independent Living with Arafmi I have learnt so many new skills and have a really enjoyable social life.  I have 4 wonderful Support Workers and my relationship with my Mum, Dad and the whole family (12 of us) has really improved.  With the help of my Support Workers, I have been able to improve my independence and can now do so many more things for myself and am also supported out in the community, to join in activities and to participate in groups.  I am now able to cook some of my own food and help with dinner every night, and sometimes I go out for lunch or dinner with my Support Workers.

I love my life now – Jessica
