New Year’s Resolution Ideas for People Living with a Disability

How many people have already asked you, “What’s your 2020 resolution?” Perhaps this question is starting to annoy you because you don’t actually have one, or maybe you love this question because you really want to talk about it! It’s 2020 and it seems that because it’s the start of a new decade, it’s more important to set a resolution this year and actually stick to it. Some people say new year’s resolutions are a waste of time because if you want to change a habit in your life, you can start any day of the year. Others can be really motivated to use the 1st of January as the perfect time to make a refreshing change in your life. Would you like to make a positive change in your life but not sure what to do exactly or where to start? We asked our blogger Alice Waterman for some goal ideas, she is one inspiring young woman who doesn’t let her disability get in the way of setting achievable goals.

New accommodation: Eutopia Rise!

There is a new SACARE accommodation that's recently opened up in Kilburn and we're loving the vibe! Whilst it still is in the process of getting renovations, a new garden, and of course a barbecue, the 5 residents who previously came from Clifford House are already settling in quite nicely (including a 11 week old pug who belongs to Alyson, the accommodation manager!). What's the best part of the accommodation? The name - Eutopia Rise!
