Before I came to Framework I was made homeless I lost my first ever flat.
I was made homeless due to money, I went from pallor to post not knowing where I would end up next, I became ill due to stress to the point I wanted to run away from it all.
Weeks past and I had a phone call from an un-none number so I answered it getting my hopes up it would be a flat of my own again no chance it was framework offering me an interview so I took it.
I finally got a room to call my own a place to go to when I needed to get away from the outside world.
I still didn’t fill myself but glad I had someone to talk to, to help me pick myself up again.
I ended up joining a course (S4I) and that’s when I started to come out of my shell. Grant (who did the course) notice a big different in me as the course came to an end and asked if I would like to be an assistant so I took the role and my confidence started to grow.
Weeks past and I moved out and moved in to a shared commutation.
It’s been a long journey with lots of laughter, tears and anger but framework staff got me though the tough days.
Year later I moved out from framework and now live with my Fiancé and his dad filling a lot happy knowing I can do better this time round.
If I can do it anyone can just believe in yourself, you’re not alone!!
Framework are not getting rid of me that easily as I volunteer as and when they need me 😉
I will also be coming back as and when the course starts back up so kettle on guys 😉
I would like to thank Jon, Sylvia, Olivia, Beth and Grant for all there help along my long journey and putting with me though the months.
So I decided to help Framework by raising as much money as I can to help others like me, no one should live on the streets or even sofa serve :( Please help me by paying as little as 20p every penny counts..
