Leigh has a learning disability and sometimes challenging behaviour. Before coming to the Life Opportunities Trust she was struggling to get the support she needed. Local social services were concerned about her safety.
Leigh now lives in her own home in Watford, with 24 hour support provided by the Life Opportunities Trust. A small team of three support workers has got to know Leigh well. She’s more relaxed and confident as a result, and enjoys life more.
Leigh is now learning to read and write and even has a part-time job as a receptionist. She takes more pride in her appearance and regularly goes out to local shops and leisure facilities.
