Andrew’s story

Learn more about what we do by following the story of one of our members, Andrew.
Prior to the network, Andrew’s social interaction was based mainly on family or paid workers. His behaviour often revealed loneliness, frustration and lack of purpose.

Since the inception of his network, Andrew’s life has ‘blossomed’. He has gained new skills and regained lost ones. Although still needing support, improved computer, writing and photography skills are the outcomes of network activities.

Now Andrew has a growing community around him. Andrew meets regularly with the people in his network, sometimes for a planned activity, sometimes just for coffee and a chat.

Andrew volunteers in his community, out of which has arisen new relationships.  Andrew is seen as a contributing member of society, valued for his presence and gifts.  One of Andrew’s goals is to start his own business, and his network are supporting him in that.

Andrew leads a fulfilling life with the love and support of his friends, his family and his network.

Lifestyle and self-esteem outcomes, not statistics, are the real measure. Andrew’s network has been successful beyond our expectations.
