Our doors have stayed open and our staff have continued working to ensure that residents remain supported.
Staying at home has been a big adjustment for all of us. Whether you’ve been working from home, keeping children entertained while schools are closed, or finding new ways to stay in touch with loved ones.
We’ve been inspired by the way so many of our clients and staff have taken lockdown as an opportunity to be creative, and a time to reflect.
Eleanor has been living at Hope Gardens for six months. After experiencing homelessness at a young age, Eleanor managed to secure a flat in London where she lived for 22 years.
Sadly, she fell into rent arrears and was evicted from her home last year. For around eight months Eleanor sofa surfed at friends’ houses but, when her friends were away, she had no choice but to sleep rough.
