Jim left care at 17 with just £35 to his name and, without the support he needed, went on to spend many years sleeping rough.
After years struggling to cope, he eventually met three St Mungo's project workers who helped him to rebuild his life. After a few months Jim finally moved into his own flat.
'It feels like home.'
Day by day, Jim is rebuilding his life. He now volunteers with St Mungo's outreach teams and helps other people off the streets. When asked what would have happened to him without St Mungo's, Jim has no hesitation in saying:
'I'd be dead by now. Guaranteed.'
