I’m David. I’d like to share my St Mungo’s journey with you.
Back in 2008 I was evicted from my flat, and ended up sleeping on the streets for three weeks. Then I was placed in a temporary hostel, where I decided to find out where and why I was going wrong in my life, and how to make the necessary changes.
Two years later, I moved into semi independent accommodation run by St Mungo’s. There I decided to get involved in Move On Training and Outside In, to find real friends and learn more about life in general.
Move On Training is a St Mungo’s service that helps clients develop the skills they need to manage their own home. Outside In is a peer support group of St Mungo’s clients, enabling them to have a voice and be meaningfully involved in the running of services.
