A woman is making a hot drink in the kitchen, she is looking into the camera and smiling.

I can go out and do things on my own.

“I enjoy spending time with other clients”

Jennie, one of our clients at our Learning Disability Support Services, explains what hobbies she enjoys and how she is supported to participate in them. Watch the video below to hear from Jennie:

Southdown manages supported living services across Sussex. Supported living is where an individual owns or rents their own home and has control over how they live their life. Accommodation and support is provided separately. It can be very different for different people. For one person, supported living might be a few hours of support a week to enable them to live independently by themselves in a rented flat. For another it may be around the clock support in a shared house or self-contained flat.

This story is part of our Southdown Stories project where we highlight the fantastic and valuable work going on across the organisation whilst raising awareness of the challenges our clients face and challenging social stigma and taboos.
