An urgent application for assistance was received from a charity for the homeless on behalf of Simon who at the time was sleeping rough. He had worked as a security officer and had various short-term security jobs as he moved around the country. Simon had been a victim of abuse as a child, suffered from mental health issues as a result, which made it difficult for him to hold down a job, so he had often travelled from place to place, sleeping rough and trying to find work where he could. Whilst sleeping rough, he was the victim of a random attack which left him with life changing injuries meaning he could no longer work and was reliant on benefits. Our intervention helped him into permanent safe accommodation, no longer in danger of attack in what can be a ruthless world.
“This is just one case of many. The fact that the SBF listened and reached out to support, means more people like Simon can be helped in the future. Our thanks go out to everyone involved”
