Taylor Morrison, My Story
When I moved into Hope Place I felt scared about living on my own for the first time and not knowing anyone else that stayed there.
The staff made me feel welcome and this helped to settle me in, they were so approachable, and I knew I could go to them about anything. They are really welcoming and made my boyfriend feel welcome and included when he visited.
During my stay at Hope Place, I gained skills including …. Building my confidence and self-esteem; I learnt about my rights and responsibilities as a tenant, including things such as priority bills, council tax. I really enjoyed the cooking sessions; it has taught me how to cook well on a budget and I am now using these skills in my own home. The things you learn at Hope Place with the staff really do help you when you move on, and I wouldn’t have been as well prepared for moving to my own home if I hadn’t come through Hope Place
I fell pregnant whilst staying at Hope Place and the staff were great, they helped me to explore all my options regarding my housing options to move on to my own house.
I was over the moon when I was offered a new build property from Loreburn Housing Association. I have now moved into this and I am getting settled in before my baby comes and we are making our house a real family home.
I can’t thank Hope Place staff and Loreburn Housing Association enough, they have given me an amazing opportunity for which I am so grateful and I absolutely love my new home.
