Settling in

Leaving home for the first time will give you new experiences and changes to your life.

If you’re moving out for the first time don’t be afraid to ask for help. There are plenty of people around you who have gone through the same experiences.

You can ask for help from friends, family and support workers.

How to settle in

Getting to know your community is a great way to help you settle into your new surroundings.

You can get to know your community by:

  • looking at different hobby groups, community centres and sports clubs
  • researching your area on Check My Street 

You can also contact the Samaritans if you’re feeling lonely and need support.
