Richard, on independent travel and working towards a goal.
Richard moved into his Supported Living tenancy in December 2020. Richard has developed his independent living skills with support from his staff and his confidence has grown so much over the last few months. We asked Richard about how he’s getting on and this is what he said about how he’s learnt to travel independently:
“I like to focus on the positives ?
I am borrowing a bike and this has helped me get out the house to stop my boredom. I was involved with looking at the risks of me riding a bike and ways to keep me safe. I have ridden the bike all the way to Newtown and back and I hope to buy my own bike soon.
I am more independent now. I am able to go on the bus on my own and I have been as far as Welshpool and Shrewsbury. I have my own Bus Pass and Rail Card”.
Richard wants to have his own place in town with less support some day and his staff team are supporting him to work towards his goal one step at a time.
