Illana Ellison lives independently in a flat in Edgware
She has been supported by Kisharon for around 20 years
How did you come to join Kisharon?
I was supported by Norwood initially, then moved to Kisharon.
What’s the best part of your week?
It’s definitely my work. I look forward to it. Every Wednesday morning I’m at The Noé Group in London, doing their shredding. I’ve made some good friends there. I also work in the cafe at the JW3 in Finchley Road.
What singles out Kisharon?
I go to day opportunities where there are always activities, and day trips. I live on my own but have a support worker on Tuesday, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays from 4-8pm to help with the washing and cleaning.
I’d love to travel.
