Blair's story

Becoming Blair – Blair’s story

“Every room in this place has a part of me in it.”


Portrait of Blair.

“She’s grown in her confidence, her self-worth and self-esteem.”


Blair and her friend sitting on a couch holding mugs and talking.

“Now I feel more comfortable and I’ve been able to have more fun.”

How being home helped Blair in other areas of her life

With a place to call home, Blair had the safety and stability she needed to develop her sense of self. Here’s how finding a home helped Blair in other areas of her life:


“We were mainly focused on stable accommodation. We wanted somewhere she felt safe, secure and connected to the LGBTQ community.” Morgana


“I’m comfortable and safe here.” Blair


“I want to be loved. I want to have friends. I want to have a family and just be seen.” Blair
