Our stories illustrate how we impact upon the lives of our guests, helping them to move forward with their lives.  We also have stories from just a few of our many volunteers and supporters.

He lost his home in the depths of winter

During the winter months work could be sporadic and he couldn't cover his rent, he began living in a tent in Hackney Marshes.

Homelessness doesn't discriminate

When you stay in a shelter you have a lot of time to think about your circumstances. I kept thinking how have I got to this point in my life?

Why Emma volunteers
