RimantasResident at Victoria Court, London
I was born in Lithuania in a town called Likmerge. I studied at theLithuania agricultural academy for 2 years and served in the Soviet Military forces.
I came to Britain in 1995 and was travelling around England. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I found myself homeless.
I was able to pull myself together with a little help and moved into my home in Spring 1996 and have been there ever since.
Why I got involved in the R2R Panel:
I wanted to get involved in the R2R Panel so that I could meet and hear from other residents about their views on Saha services and offer my point of view on how to improve services for all Saha residents.
As part of the R2R Panel, Ihave been involved in 2 scrutiny activities and found both of them very interesting. During the first scheme visit to south London, I found out how Saha supports the elderly and people with disabilities. There was a friendly atmosphere and the scheme was very clean, with a nice community garden and communal areas for residents to enjoy.
I’m looking forward to the forthcoming scrutiny activities.
