Get in touch

Be inspired by the stories of people we've supported

When we met Maggie (real name not used) she was sat on the street. It was raining and she was crying. She had her young child with her. She informed us that she was homeless and had nowhere to go.    

Read Dom's story or see more stories.

We liaised with doctors, mental health support teams and social services to get Maggie the support she needed. Eventually Maggie was able to find her own private rented accommodation.
