PossAbilities own Adeline ‘Adi’ Dalman (pictured left) has won the Outstanding Shared Lives Carer Award 2019, Like other Shared Lives carers, Adi shares her home with a person needing a place to live and a bit of support.
In this case, it’s Gabby Holt, who found life a real struggle sharing a house with a group of boys, whilst transitioning to a woman. Gabby says “It was really stressful getting a diagnosis and having the anxiety of just going out and seeing people that I knew before I started the transition. Yet Adi supported me all the way and helped me to find the person that I am today. Thanks to Adi, my life has been transformed and I am now living independently”.
For Adi, who by day, is a Support Officer at PossAbilities, this is a massive accolade. There are 15o Shared Lives schemes across the country and our Adi cane out tops.
