Personalised support leads to success at Harwich House

Everyone is delighted with Lucy’s* recent progress at Harwich House. Lucy moved to Harwich House in August 2016 from her family home - she faces many challenges on a daily basis and requires a dedicated, supportive and caring team to work with her. It was a challenging start to life at Harwich House for Lucy as so much was new for her. Initially, she was not keen to have contact with staff or the other people living at the house.
