Laura took part in one of community learning’s Roof Over My Head courses.  This course supports learners in temporary or emergency accommodation to prepare for and successfully manage the tenancies.

When the tutor Shirley Andrews was asked who she would like to nominate she immediately said Laura.

Laura was a committed and engaged learner taking as much from the course as she could.

Since the course, Laura has been on a long and at times frustrating journey.

“Despite some challenges,

she attended every day and participated fully, always enthusiastic.”

She has waited patiently for her new flat to be fully adapted to meet her needs which meant staying longer in temporary accommodation

She is now very pleased to be in her first ever property, living independently and able to draw on the knowledge she gained from the course.
