My journey

Sarah Latham


Sarah's life journey started off on the wrong track when she was sent to a special school, rather than being diagnosed with Dyslexia and given appropriate support. After years of not wanting to leave the house, self-harming and self-doubt, she was able to work with her Counsellor and Occupational Therapist to take those first crucial steps on a new journey. Leaving the house, and travelling on the bus opened up new horizons and successes. Sarah in now a service user representative and a peer mentor for others. She has travelled all over Staffordshire exploring bus services for an assessment of the suitability of public transport provision for service users, has her own flat and is making plans for future journeys - this time on trains.
