Les’s Story

Les says: “Since the age of 16, I have been involved with many services but Kingdom Housing, without a doubt, is second to none. I have never felt so happy with my life”.

This follows a time where Les was facing eviction, living rough with the potential of going to jail. Les had little money, had fallen into arrears, had no way of furnishing his home and had fallen into addiction. He did not want to engage with the people and the services he needed because he could not see a way out and did not have the confidence and motivation to take action himself.

Les was given support by staff through the Prevention First Service initially to prevent him from losing his home and having to sleep rough. Once this was done, he was given support to apply for the right benefits, to find ways of furnishing his home and to engage with the people and services he needed to so that he could get his life back on track.

Les has been able to stop his downward spiral and regain control over his life and now has a small amount of support each week to help keep him on the right track. He hopes he will continue to make progress but right now says he is in a happy place.
