My name is Benjamin, I started in September 2014 and I spent four years in residential supported Living at the Orpheus Centre.

Before Orpheus I lived at home with my family. When I came here I felt comfortable in staying here in my supported flat with the support of Domiciliary Care who were very helpful and nice.

I enjoyed the freedom of choice knowing that my family and the caring staff were supporting me with things like healthy eating, trips out and my out of session homework. I especially enjoyed going to London to see the changing of the guards and the museums.

I am now looking forward to moving on to a shared house with two others and to do voluntary work and having been prepared by my time at the Orpheus I am feeling confident in the next stage of my life.


In his final year, Benjamin starred on the West End in Sir Richard's Stilgoe's Orpheus the Mythical.
