Significant improvements made by learner since moving into Sunnyside house

Michael has done really well with travelling in the community independently. When Michael first moved in he was supported to access the community, with lots of travel training he was able to make the long journey from Aveley to Hutton where his parents live independently via public transport.

Michael has shown a keen interest in cars and decided that he wanted to do driving lessons. Michael was supported to arrange this and for quite a while was having driving lessons. Unfortunately due to deterioration in his mental health this was postponed for the time being, however this is definitely a goal to carry on in the future.

Michael has undertaken several volunteering opportunities which he has really enjoyed including working in retail and in a café as well as one off volunteering opportunities.
