Flat 108 – Supporting Independence

During the #lcil24 newsroom we called Mahdi who was spending his first overnight stay at The Y’s Flat 108 project.

Duncan (a media volunteer from Leicester College) asked Mahdi how he was getting on.

He said, “I’m enjoying myself. I’m not sure what it will be like to stay here overnight but I’m looking forward to it.
