Case study - Tommy
Tommy is a tenant with our housing support and care at home service, Queens Cross East. He started receiving support in 1993, after being referred to the service.
He had been living in bedsit accommodation, and believed he would benefit from a supported tenancy. Socially isolated and needing some support to settle into his new tenancy, Tommy was introduced to the Queens Cross East staff team.
Initially, Tommy attended a Queens Cross East art class. From there, he became involved in making a short film with his Housing Support Worker and other service users. The film was called ‘Gangsters’ and was a fantastic success, with Tommy and his co-stars arriving to the premiere in a limousine and being presented with an ‘Oscar’. The experience gave Tommy's confidence a real boost.
Since then he has attended lots of social outings, been involved in decision making on his housing support service and now attends a new weekly art class. He’s also very involved in the Association’s Stag Group, a social group for men over 60.
