Carly’s Advocacy Story
“The advocate continued to support me in meetings. It was crucial to my wellbeing that they were there. They found out what my options were, and helped me understand these options, and how they might work for me”.
“Jodie has been able to fully access two National Trust properties in Cornwall. Today we have been at Godolphin. In April she was able to use the Tramper at Lanhydrock”.
“It stopped me from worrying about things, we could talk things through. It was somebody at the end of the phone to have a laugh with.”
“When I was diagnosed I went through a very difficult time. I felt despair and self pity. I thought I would not be able to do anything for myself. See Hear gave me hope and inspired me”.
“I am grateful for the help applying for a job”
I didn’t know what to expect or if they would be able to help me. When I got there it was fabulous. The equipment you can try out and hire makes all the difference.
“It is very rewarding watching people build their confidence and being part of their journey in sports”
“Anyone to talk to is very helpful, you can just phone them and they are happy to talk to you. They listen and get to know your back story. To know there’s a voice there to listen to you when you need it has made a difference.”
“I’m fifty and can now go with my wife, grandchildren and dog rather than sitting in the car pretending I’m okay.”
‘’Living Options Devon, gave me my life back.’’
“I now have my confidence to participate in the discussions that matter to me and a voice I want to share”.
