I find the move to Ballymisert from Kirkliston is good. I find it more relaxing, I cope better in a flat rather than a shared house. There is 24hr staff that are reliable and having staff awake all night gives me peace of mind. There is CCTV no-one can get in I feel secure. The move has been good for me. (Service User)
I worked in Kirkliston for a long time and felt a bit apprehensive about the move to Ballymisert. I can honestly say the move has been a very positive one for both Staff and Tenants. The Tenants that came from Kirkliston have become even more independent and we have seen a great improvement in their mental health. My time spent working in Ballymisert has been like having a new job it is very busy and there is always plenty to do. We have a lot of new Tenants and new staff and we have all worked well together and the new team is coming together very well. (Staff Member)
The move from Kirkliston to Ballymisert has been a positive one for everyone. I have enjoyed the move, and enjoyed getting to know and work with new people. The tenants that have moved from Kirkliston have all done extremely well with the change and all the new tenants have settled in very well. Everyone is enjoying the activities we provide and all the tenants have been getting on great together. (Staff Member)
