22 year old Callum was referred to us by Plymouth Adult Social Care Team as a vulnerable adult who was living in a shared house in Plymouth. Callum has autism and other related mental health issues and needs housing support to enable him to live independently - he had expressed a wish to move from his shared house into his own flat and it was felt that this was an appropriate move for Callum as long as he was adequately supported to manage his tenancy.

Callum has been exploited by others in the past and it was important that he was able to live in an area where this risk was minimised. He was also keen to stay living close to his parents so they can visit him and ensure that he is safe and happy. Hollywell also visit Callum every week to make sure that he is managing his utility bills and taking care of his home, as well as getting out and about safely and getting the support he needs to manage his day to day activities from his care provider Arrow Support.

We managed to find Callum a new flat that is close to local shops and transport links but that is in a quite area where he can keep himself to himself and as you can see, he has settled in really well!
