Gary lived with his parents in Kingswood until nearly a year ago when sadly his mum passed away. Gary has since moved on into supported living accommodation in Hanham.

When Gary started with us at Stepping Forward South Gloucestershire, he weighed 23 stone 4 pounds, but since living in his new home in Hanham, Gary has been supported to eat healthily and take regular exercise and has lost over 6 stone. Due to this, his mobility has improved and Gary has asked another female service user who attends the group out for a meal and she has accepted. They have discussed the date and decided they would like to go to Bottolino’s and have a pizza, Gary said he would like a beer as well!

Gary is supported to visit his father 3 times a week. His father is thrilled with the outcome of Gary’s health and well-being and is really pleased he has lost weight. On his visits, Gary never fails to pick up a photo of his mum saying, “hello mum, I love you mum.”

Gary has settled well into his home and now has a housemate. All the changes have made a huge impact on Gary’s life. Things could not have turned out happier.
