Roseville is a large house which has been a long-term home for some and a launching pad to a higher level of independent living for many others. We have seen many people transition from care in large institutions to Roseville, and then move on to their own flat or house with varying levels of support – a recognition of their newly gained independent living skills! Roseville hosts many barbecues and other social functions for members of The Housing Connection community.

“I started at THC way back in 2016 as a TTW student. Despite being shy and anxious, I used to come into THC 2 days a week and close the door to study my graphic design diploma, plus I didn’t find socialising easy. I didn’t even like eating my lunch in the kitchen; as I ate out in food courts alone.

Fast forward to 2021 and a lot has changed since the last few years.

My socialising skills have blossomed out, extremely, that I now attend every social event.

Pre COVID-19, I attended Saturday Socials, Pizza Night, Boot Camp, Walking Club and every other THC BBQ or party celebrated (eg. the pub). During COVID-19, I still come to the office three days a week (special consideration); and also to continue with the walks.

Since I have started to socialise, I feel like I say I have friends that I enjoy talking to (and teasing!). Also, during this time, I engage on Houseparty with other clients, showing my designs and playing trivia, and helping THC with my artistic flyers.

Today, I feel like a different person; as I changed socially, and my confidence and I know every person, and they know my name and it’s important to me.” – Alex Stanton Graphic Designer
