What young people said

I feel very supported by my Project Worker. She really listens to me, doesn’t tell me what to do, and treats me like a person. My Project Worker has helped me sort repairs in my home, and my benefits.


My Project Worker is brilliant. She talks through things so I understand them, has helped me with my housing and she’s there for me when I need her.
