Tanya was referred to Hollywell by the Torbay Adult Social Care team in February 2016. She was assessed as being a vulnerable individual with a learning disability who needed support to live on her own. Tanya actually found herself her new flat - she approached a couple who had just bought a flat around the corner from where she was previously living and asked them whether they would rent it to her! Tanya's bravery and confidence paid off - the owners of the flat were more than happy to rent to Hollywell so that Tanya could live there.

They were completely renovating the flat, having bought it from someone who had lived there for many decades, and Tanya has ended up with a stunning new home with brand new kitchen, bathroom and carpets throughout. We were really impressed by Tanya's confidence in approaching the landlord herself - it showed how committed she was to finding herself a new home and both Hollywell and Tanya's support team agree that this bodes well for a successful happy tenancy!
