Home Group champions

We are celebrating our customers, our real-life Home Group champions.

Meet our inspirational customers

The Commonwealth Games has allowed us to showcase our inspirational customers supported by our services across Birmingham and the wider West Midlands.

Aviary House in Solihull supports those with mental health needs. As does our universal prevention service in Handsworth.  We also support those who may be homeless across Birmingham and Solihull. Lastly, we support those who care for family members or others with mental health conditions.

If you are interested in learning more about our models of care, please get in touch.

"My name is Phil, and I have a learning disability. I moved to Aviary House in 2020 because I didn’t like living independently, and they could support my needs."

"In 2016, I moved to Aviary house. Before, I was in the hospital for 18 months due to a mental breakdown. I like Aviary House because I can start living alone again with support if needed. Since being here, I have managed to find confidence, feel safe and feel better physically and mentally."

"I never saw life past being a young carer, but Home Group helped me build confidence to achieve more, and I’m now going to graduate from university with a psychology degree."

"Home Group has supported me in managing my emotional health. I faced challenging times looking after my wife, who has mental health issues, and my son, who also has a health condition. We live far away from family and extra support. But my support worker is always there to help when I am struggling, advise me on housing issues, and talk to other services to help me. There are no words that I can use to describe the support. I will always be thankful for the help."

"I suffer from mental health issues, and in 2015 I moved to Aviary House as it offered me the support I needed while living independently. The colleagues here are very understanding and supportive. If I could describe Home Group in one word, it would be awesome."

"Home Group are really supportive. When I need help, they provide me with a place to talk about my feelings. Since their support, I have met other young carers who I enjoy going out with and my support worker Beki, who is great. She always knows the right thing to say."

"I moved to Aviary House in May 2005. I suffered a breakdown and still regularly suffer from anxiety. My circumstances left me needing a little support, but I still wanted to live independently. I am very settled and happy here and have made some good friends. I love the new garden area; it brightens my day. It’s my job to keep it looking clean and tidy. This gives me meaning to my day."

"At Birmingham Mental Health Carers’ service, carers can confidentially express their feelings and thoughts. Having friendly people around reminds me that I'm not alone, keeps me positive and helps me a lot. I recently joined our carers’ arts and crafts group and attended a Chinese meal with other carers at Ming Moon in Birmingham."

"I’m a parent-carer to my two children with mental health needs. Since being support by Home Group, I have found friendships and support. Before this, I felt isolated and would never have joined a support group."
