Embarking on a journey towards independence often begins with finding the right support system.

For Jason, that journey led him to seek out Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA). With help from Enliven Housing, Jason found not just a place to live, but an environment that has empowered him to thrive.

Before finding a place with Enliven, Jason’s living situation was far from ideal. The cramped space limited his ability to move freely and perform daily tasks independently. However, this all changed when he moved into his new SDA housing provided by Enliven.

“I was living in a very small apartment, a very awkward kind of living space,” he recalls. “Being in this new place provided by Enliven is just phenomenal.”

Jason’s new home was a game-changer. The space is not only bigger, but it has been custom designed to suit his specific needs. This customisation has been crucial in regaining his independence. This shift has made a significant difference in his daily life, contributing to a greater sense of autonomy and comfort.

“I can actually move around freely, I can do a lot of tasks by myself that usually I wouldn’t be up to do” he explains.

Enliven Housing operates on a friendly landlord model of support, which focuses on sustaining tenancies with a commitment to tenant skills development. Enliven also focuses on community support, with all Enliven tenants having access to the Community Cooperative.

The impact of Jason’s move goes beyond just physical space. One of the most notable changes for him is the boost in his energy levels and overall well-being. The supportive community and thoughtful design of his living environment have fostered a positive and uplifting atmosphere.

“The quality of life has improved incredibly,” says Jason. “I actually feel energised when I wake up because I actually live in a good house and around good people as well.”

Jason’s journey with SDA and Enliven shows the impact that finding the right support and accommodation. It’s a reminder that with understanding, compassion, and the right resources, individuals like Jason can thrive, regardless of the challenges they face.
