Wayne's story

After Wayne found his mum dead, he struggled to cope with the trauma. He turned to drugs and ended up sleeping rough for many years. He felt like no-one cared. 

That all changed when Wayne found St Mungo's. Our outreach workers got Wayne off the streets and into recovery. While in accommodation, his support worker encouraged him to apply for a construction skills workshop. The workshop has given him the skills and confidence to get his life back on track. 

"I had never had support before I met my St Mungo's worker. St Mungo's have played a big part in the changing of my life". 

We’re sharing stories of people who have experienced homelessness from all walks of life. Join our movement, together we can end homelessness.

Week One - Women's homelessness

St Mungo's #WakeUpToHomelessness campaign raises awareness about homelessness and the dangers of rough sleeping. This week St Mungo's will be shining a light on the experiences of women.

Women's homelessness statisticPeople often think of homelessness as a men’s issue. And it’s true that the statistics show that more men sleep rough than women.

But women who are homeless are much more likely to experience trauma or abuse on the streets than men. That's why they often remain hidden.
