Gabbie lives with two flatmates, has a job, is about to start her second qualification at WINTEC, and is achieving the things she wants to do in her life. However, Gabbie has autism and life hasn’t always been easy. Although she has a great relationship with her family, living at home wasn’t giving her the opportunities she dreamed of. Gabbie dreamt of independence, friendships and being able to make a difference in the world.
Now, with ConneXu’s support, she has made a plan of how she is going to achieve these things. She also has the support network to help her get there. With ConneXu, Gabbie is achieving her dreams, and living her life, her way.
“If I wasn’t with ConneXu I would be spending my whole life wondering what I missed out on. When I lived at home, I didn’t have a lot of friends and I struggled in school. I was a bit of a loner and sat at home most of the time. My life has improved dramatically since I moved into the flat with ConneXu’s support.”
