Independence Sova works with people in the process of moving on from living situations in which they have limited control or ability to exercise free choice. For example, young people leaving care; those leaving prison; families experiencing difficulties or setbacks and people with insecure housing. Such life changes can be very daunting. We support people to feel safe and supported at this time so they can make the transition to an independent and self-determining life and face the future with confidence. Sova also encourages people to become active participants in their communities so they feel involved in the life of their community and are able to make their voices heard on the issues that matter to them.
