“My marriage breakdown meant that I suddenly became homeless shortly before my 51st birthday with just a bag of clothes, my work clothes, and no money. For two nights, I slept on a camp bed in the night shelter in Bath, before getting a small room, and then other temporary accommodation. Having access to a bed and a shower meant that I could at least continue going into work for a catering company. Ironically, the catering company was donating meals to the night shelter I was living in, so I was helping to prepare food during the day that I would then eat in the evening.
DHI and Home Turf Lettings were a lifeline for me. They found me a home, and my confidence and self esteem are now returning. I’ve taken up projects in the house like refurbishing a dining table so that my housemates and I have a nice place to sit and eat, and I’m starting to work on the garden so that we can grow our own vegetables. I’m so grateful for the support that I have been given. Having a stable, secure home is essential for a full life, and Home Turf Lettings have given me that.”
