“When Lara comes home from her three-night stays at BestLife she immediately starts putting her ‘housemates’ skills to use! Making toast, putting her clothes in the laundry and asking ‘see BestLife friends, Dad?’. Our wish for Lara is that one day she may live together with her friends –people she chooses, in a place of their own. Thanks to BestLife Lara now has lifelong friends and a life of her own is becoming possible. That is truly life changing for her and us. Without BestLife Lara would be living a much lonelier life. Helena’s House will help secure that pathway for her.”  

Derek Thomson, Lara’s dad.
