Arina and Nina used to only meet once a week – at activities organised for the care home where Nina lived. Now, Arina is applying to become Nina’s guardian, giving the 27-year-old hope she might finally be able to leave the institution where she has lived her entire adult life.

For the past few months Nina Torgashova has been able to enjoy an independence that had always been out of reach for her – shopping, cooking and washing her own clothes.

Things that would be every-day life experiences for most 27-year-olds.
