Leigh makes a big impact to the lives of residents who benefit from the support he gives them – helping them access services which can change their life.
He provides person-centred support – helping residents with learning difficulties, mental health issues, addictions and more, to tackle things they need a helping hand to resolve.
A mental health support worker for 12 years before joining Muir, Leigh makes sure support you receive is tailored exactly for you.
"I promote independence, but I show people how they can do things and take the first steps together to make them less overwhelming," Leigh said.
Sophie has predominantly worked in the mental health sector and identifies support for residents to help them overcome difficulties they face.

Passionate about helping others, Sophie has also previously worked as a Tenancy Sustainment Officer for a charity providing community-based support.
"It's a role that gives you the opportunity to make a really positive difference to someone’s life," Sophie said.
