Simon on the Streets are delighted to welcome Your Engine Room to our 5 for 5 Partnership Scheme.
We're so pleased to see Jill move into a place of her own. Many services have attempted to work with Jill over the years but Jill’s behaviour is often called “chaotic” and she had been restricted from many services.
Bridget had struggled to find somewhere safe to sleep. She had slept in derelict buildings, squats and even bins. She had undertaken survival sex several times to gain shelter for the night.
We met Nadine one day at a day shelter. She was shivering, cold and upset. This is unusual for Nadine, who is usually feisty and bubbly.
"We wanted to partner with a charity doing work to support people in ways helpful to them."
Joe and Luke's story
Joe and Luke reside in HMP Leeds. Inspired to help the homeless, they wanted to create a project to raise funds for Simon on the Streets.
Aiden has a deep mistrust of services and refuses offers of support. We visit Aiden regularly and we're slowly building up trust. Recently, we were able to be there for Aiden when he had his belongings stolen.
We have been supporting one of our long-term clients, Chris (real name not used), into his own permanent place. But, moving into his own place doesn't mean the end of our support.
