Kerry's Story

I have lived at cantraybridge for 2 1/2 years. I attend college 4 days out of the week. I like attending college as it gets me motivated and gets me to think positively. I like painting and decorating and hoping in the future i can do this as a job... or hairdressing. My main achievement while being here is the skills i have learned in woodwork and gardening. 

Harry's Story

I have lived at cantraybridge since may 2016 (1 year & 6 months). At college I enjoy working with the animals and socialising with my friends and doing activates with them. In the future i would like to live independently and hopefully get a job with animals to carry on from my interests at college. My main achievement whilst being here is developing a social life and making friends for life.
