NCHA Care and Support help to ensure vulnerable people are able to live safely and securely, either in their own home or NCHA accommodation.

Living independently means having the right support to do things when and how you want, leading to greater choice and control in directing your own life.

As you get older, you will need to begin living life more independently. That doesn't mean that you will have to give up help from family, friends and organisations, but rather, being able to make decisions about your life and how you live it. Independence will look different for everyone, but it's important to plan ahead to make sure everything is in place to let you live your life with confidence and the support needed to succeed.

Working toward independence can involve making changes to many parts of your life, and theses changes will need to happen gradually, maybe over a number of years, to make sure you have everything you need to stay healthy and happy.

Watch this short film to hear young people sharing their thoughts on what to think about when looking at what to do next.
