"I really can't thank House Trained enough" - Abi's Story


When 18 year old Abi was told she would have to wait at least two years for her own home, she turned to YPSF help. Abi explains:

“I’d been in Manchester for three years, after coming here from Gambia. When I was 18 I was moved from my shared house into a hostel, and I found it really difficult to study there because of the noise but I was told I’d have to wait at least two years before I was given my own home.

“YPSF had been helping me since I arrived in Manchester, and my worker told me about House Trained and how it could increase my chances of being offered a home.

“The course really helped me. It covered all sorts of things I didn’t know about, like managing bills, not getting into debt and making sure you always follow the rules of the tenancy. Without the course I would have been a bit lost because I’d never lived on my own before and didn’t know what was involved.

“Just a couple of months after finishing the course, I was offered my flat. I really love it in my new home, I have lots of friends around me and I’m so happy and comfortable. It’s so quiet and peaceful, and it’s so much easier to study now. 

“Doing the course has given me a lot of confidence, and if I need any help or want to do something, I know how to ask for advice and help. I really can’t thank House Trained enough.”
