“We were very pleased to find an ‘umbrella’ agency which provides a responsive and professional service which certainly is value for money and has a transparent system of delivery and monitoring. I would definitely use this service again. It is a relief to know that the work done is ‘supervised’ by an agency and that the service is evaluated thoroughly. I would definitely recommend this service. We find that our ‘handyman’ Adam is punctual, informative, courteous and interested in providing the best possible response to our needs. The service is tailored to individual needs and we have been very satisfied with its delivery.”
"I have been living on the Slate Project since Oct 2014, during this time I been supported with different things such as applying for training courses, making and attending appointments, managing money and overall learning to live independently.
I am now ready for move on so have a found a new flat which I will move into, the Slate project are helping me with my move and staff contacted the CHNI (Council for Homeless Northern Ireland) who supplied me with a move in pack, which I am more than pleased with. I will continue to work with Slate on Floating Support as it’s great to know they are there for me if I need it."
“Hi my name is Charlene I’ve been living on the SLATE project since November 2015. The project has given me my own flat where I can live independently with the support of the staff and my support worker Louise. During my time on the project I have been given the opportunity to take part in different events, such as the YPI NI (Youth Philanthropy Initiative Northern Ireland) and a PANI (Publicity Association Northern Ireland) questionnaires. Throughout my stay on the project I have been attending the Special Olympic sports in our local leisure centre where I have taken part several competitions and won 5 medals. SLATE project is fun and I love getting involved with any activities the project offers. Without the project I wouldn’t be where I am now or as happy as I am.”
