Hi, I am Miguel, and I am the Service Manager for our Supported Housing. Our service is tailored to meeting your needs and supporting you to reach your potential. We strive to provide you a place that you feel comfortable in and one that you want to call ‘home’. We are not going to do everything for you. This is where your development to living independently can take place. From diet and cooking to health and hygiene, bills and budgeting to keeping a home, our multidisciplinary team will be there to support you through these and every step of your transition into living in your own home. Our priority is for you to engage in education. We will help you apply for and attend a college and course of your choice, and put support in place to help you achieve success. You can learn more about our supported housing service by requesting a guide which has more information in it. If you want, we will come and meet you to tell you more, or you can even come and visit us in one of our homes. We have a Young Persons Forum where young people from all our different services regularly meet up, fundraise, interview staff and eat lots of food. However, I thought it may be useful to hear from one of our previous clients from the forum, to tell you about us instead. This is what Abi said:
I lived with Fevaca for about a year and a half at Kyanite House, which is close to Cambridge city centre. I really enjoyed living there and felt happy enough to be myself. I got on well with most of the staff who supported me when I needed them and were always there to talk to about anything. The best thing is that you can have a laugh with them at times. Although it took a lot of getting used to at first, I felt very comfortable living in the house and being around the people there. The house meals, activities and regular outings were really good and helped create a homely, family atmosphere. Kyanite House is just opposite some shops and is near everything you might need. It is easy to get to the city centre and there is always a lot of interesting things to do in Cambridge. When I was living in Kyanite, I managed to achieve a Level 1 Passport to Independence certificate and completed an access to nursing course. I miss living there and still visit the house regularly and catch up with staff.
