    Hi Ellie, have you told your mum about this? It doesn’t sound like this is appropriate behaviour for either cleaners or support workers to me but I feel your mum may be able to help?

    Heya @ellie2000 just wanted to check in to see how you're doing at the moment, as has already been said, that should not be something that cleaners or support workers are doing and you deserve to feel safe around these people. I hope you've been able to confide in your mum about this as you really do deserve support. <3 In terms of the alcohol showing up in your blood test, I've read online that if they are looking for alcohol it can remain in your blood for up to 28 days here is the link:

    Hey @ellie2000 how are you? I agree with the comments above this is inappropriate behaviour from the cleaner, is there anyone at home you can talk to about this to prevent it from happening in the future?

    We are all here if you feel unsafe and need someone to turn to <3

    Hi @ellie2000.
    I understand that it's something you can't control, as it's your cleaner's actions, and maybe you feel like you can't say no (correct me if I'm wrong). You said that you'd told your mum about this, which is great! That's such a brave thing for you to do!

    Could you maybe speak to your mum about getting a different cleaner? As everyone has already said, it's not appropriate what he's doing at all, and it might be best if he no longer worked for you, to help make you safe.

    I hope you're well.
