Adam's story

Life is different now, much better...

Before I came to Transform, I was living in a place with too much support. I was not keen on living there and I wanted my own space. In 2007 I moved to a shared house with Transform in Guildford. I liked being independent again.

Life is different now, much better. I like my routine and having my own space. Each week I go to a drama class, a pottery class and a disco. I often go swimming and to the cinema. I have a part-time job at a café. I prepare the coleslaw and vegetables and I do some volunteer gardening. I really enjoy helping out.

I see Transform staff most days and it’s good to know someone is there. I meet my keyworker Graham for support with whatever I need. My favourite thing about Transform is the staff, they are brilliant!


Graham, Adam's Keyworker:

Adam lives in a shared house, with two other people with learning disabilities. The set-up of the house works really well, as each person does their own thing but they get to spend time together when they want to.

I meet Adam twice a week for support in areas such as menu planning, food shopping, doctors’ appointments and paperwork. Adam tells me the things he wants help with and I work with him to resolve these issues in a way that he is happy with.
