Christine's story

I really like my new flat because I got to choose how it looked...

When I first moved to Transform, I lived at Camperdown. I liked living there because I made lots of friends. The staff were also really nice – they help me with my money and my rent. I was very excited when Transform said they were going to build new flats next door. We got to watch them being built!

I really like my new flat because I got to choose how it looked, including my purple bedroom. I even helped choose the name Pear Tree Manor. I still see my friends who moved over to Pear Tree Manor with me, and I host fish and chip night on a Friday!

I feel more independent now. I can cook my food and wash up on my own.

I feel more independent now. I can cook my food and wash up on my own. I enjoy watering the garden and feeding the birds too. I also love being on the Transform Client Forum. I get to speak up and be involved.

At the moment, I go to college. Last year I got qualifications in textiles and music. This year, I’m going to learn about computers, time management and speaking up!

Iris, Christine’s aunt

Before Transform, Christine was living with a family. Unfortunately circumstances changed and they couldn’t look after her anymore. Christine then had the choice of going to live with someone else or moving to Transform and being more independent. She opted for being independent and so moved to Camperdown. I have noticed a difference in Christine, she really enjoys it here. I think Transform is wonderful. For Christine to have this is wonderful – I know she absolutely loves it.

"I have learnt a lot but the most important thing is to be well because it really does matter and that’s because of Transform."
"I feel really happy at the moment because I know that if I’ve got any problems I can just ring her... She’s great – she’s always there when I need her."
For Chris the past year feels “like a new era, a new chapter. I’m looking forward to the future with optimism.”
"I intend to do great things with the life that Transform has given me, just watch this space!"
