Christmas Case Study – Michael’s Story
Your support allows us to provide practical and professional help to people experiencing homelessness. We recently spoke to Michael who told us his story:
“There was violence at home and I couldn’t stand to bear it, that’s the reason I became homeless.
I first got into contact with Action Homeless in 2007 because I was looking for accommodation. I’ve been given fantastic support and opportunities to try living in different places so I can get settled and feel more independent.
I moved into a new house last year, it’s one of the best because its brand new, Action Homeless only did it up last year, it’s like a palace when you walk in. I’ve had to move between lots of places in the last 10 years but the house I am in now is great because I can stay here as long as I want. I can settle in and it feels really secure.
The rooms are great; we have our own space and our own bathrooms, but we also share a kitchen, which gives you a chance to get to know people. I’ve got lovely housemates, it’s nice and quiet but there is always someone nearby for a cup of tea and a chat.”
