The House Project

Making a big change in a person’s life

“I would like to say that having the opportunity to be on the House Project has completely helped to change my life in many ways, I was really nervous at the beginning of the project and was unsure just how much I would be supported, but after only meeting my worker a few times I was able to just be myself and felt that she was there to support me at all costs and nothing was a trouble. I have felt that I am able to ask for support and know that this will be given.

“I have attended at the base and attended the group sessions. I also went on a residential with the group and this helped us to build good relationships.

“I was able to find confidence to find a job until I started my college, I have passed my driving test and have been offered my own tenancy now and I think that without the support of the House Project I would not have been able to achieve all I have achieved in a short space of time. 

“I’m hoping to apply for an apprenticeship with Fife Council as I finish my college course in June and have been thinking about my future and career, this is something I have discussed with my worker in my 1-1 sessions.

“I am feeling confident for getting my keys for my house and know the House Project and my worker will be there to support me if I need it, and I would absolutely recommend any young person leaving care to apply for The House Project.

“I’m thankful that people believed in me and I was given this opportunity.”
