At a recent leaving care event which was attended by members of staff and the house manager of one of ACAD services. The manager met a past resident of ACAD who we shall refer to as Susan*. Susan took great pride in telling the manager her achievements. Susan is now a proud mother and has passed her HNC Social Care with flying colours achieving an A grade pass. Susan is now a volunteer with a Scottish government sponsored young person’s support service. She also attends conferences and schools to present on her experiences and achievements. Susan said of ACAD, “The staff team should be so proud for all the help and encouragement they gave me. I realise that not only a family can give you love and support, there are genuine people who really want you to do well.” We are so pleased Susan is doing so well and wish her continued happiness and success.
