Lucy* one of our fabulous, courageous, clients spoke to us about her experiences of homelessness. Recently she updated us about her journey in a way that only she could articulate. 🧡⁠

Lucy has a very important anniversary coming up next week - one year sober - and we are incredibly proud and inspired by her resilience and bravery. ⁠

She said:⁠

"I still have a note that my key worker Tamsin left in my journal, as throughout a particularly trying time, I began to doubt whether there was any real point in dreaming:⁠

Why am I here?⁠

What do I want?⁠

What have I felt?⁠

Simple right? Three very poignant yet seemingly simple questions, which made me think, they still do."⁠

🌞🌜⭐⁠

Thank you Lucy for sharing your story with us.

In a special shout-out this #ThankYouThursday, we want to extend humongous gratitude to Harry and Chalky @hpvideo for their expertise in shooting and creating our video ahead of #worldmentalhealth Day 🎥⁠

Mental ill-health can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, occupation... and homeless people often suffer in silence without knowing where to turn to or how to get help, meaning they can't move on in their situation. ⁠

We're not giving too much away yet, but watch this space - video will be coming early October! 🙌🏼⁠
