Story

Mustard Tree support people in need to develop new skills, find work and secure somewhere to live through providing practical support, friendship, connections into work and improvements to health and wellbeing, alongside new experiences to encourage aspiration.

Critically, they do not characterise by need. Whatever somebody’s background we provide our holistic package of support in a safe, trusted welcoming space open to all.

Jamie’s story: (You can find lots of stories here: http://www.mustardtree.org.uk/life-stories/)

I was at woodlands until I was 18 but when I was 19 I started my long slide into the prison service and I spent eight years just yo-yo-ing in and out of prison. A couple of other charities supported me during this time but I continued to lead this same lifestyle.

I got a diagnosis of emotionally unstable personality disorder, depression and anxiety in December 2013 and I became suicidal. I was very fortunate that a police sergeant intercepted me making a big mistake and this further helped me to get back on the right path.

It is really hard for me to verbalise just how important being part of Mustard Tree is to me, it has taken me from feeling I am worthless to feeling as though I can achieve anything I put my mind to.”
