Conversion work has been completed on a house in Grantham which has enabled three adults to start a new life and live independently.  

Radis Community Care will provide supported living services to the individuals in partnership with Golden Lane Housing, supported housing landlords for people with a learning disability and those living with autism

Siblings, Aiden and Shannon, have moved out of their family home for the first time this month to start living independently at this new supported living service. Their mother, Michelle, who has been very involved in the process said: “I’ve seen the property since it’s been renovated and it’s looking lovely! 

“We’re very excited for Aiden and Shannon to experience what it’s like living on their own. It’s obviously hard to see them go but it’s an exciting change and we think this big move is going to be the making of them.”

Gavin Dixon, head of supported living services at Radis Community Care, said: “We’re proud that the individuals moving into their home are able to start a new, independent chapter of their lives and that with our support, this close knit group can live together. 

“Supported living services provide a great opportunity for those living with complex additional needs, learning disabilities and neurodivergence to develop independence with bespoke care and support.”

Aiden and Shannon’s childhood friend, Joseph, is also moving into the same property with them. 

His mother Julie said: “Everything has been absolutely fantastic. The team at Radis have been very helpful and have answered all our questions promptly.”

Radis Community Care supports people of all ages and with a diverse range of disabilities, conditions and levels of need with a common goal to provide care that is tailored to the choices of each individual, so that they can lead an independent life.
