Dale(who joined our platform as Joe for safety reasons) has moved into a small flat of his own after rough sleeping in a tent for several years. He finally gets to see his son more often and spend quality time with him. Dale is now completing a college course to get back into employment.
"Thank you so much for giving me deposit money for my room, it's amazing not sleeping in a tent and actually feeling like life is worth living now, I get to have my son over as I have a lovely landlady who knows all about my past and is still giving me a chance!
I have started a college course so hopefully will have a job soon after. Thank you again you have no idea how much this means to people like me in my situation.
Thank you for giving me my dignity backand giving me a chance to live!
Thank you again." - Dale
I am currently homeless and living in a tent. I have no benefits and cannot get a job because I have no ID or bank account. I just hope to have the opportunity to have somewhere safe to stay so that I can rebuild my life and start to look forward to getting my son back. I know that I need to make big changes but not having a home makes it almost impossible. Aspire are going to help me arrange my benefits once I've got my ID and housing, once I've got this stability I can start trying to find work.
