Jeffrey's Story continued...


"After enduring physical assaults and being constantly stereotyped I tried to commit suicide. I never went begging so I had to figure out ways to survive and soon I was able to point other street homeless people to local services. The death of a friend encouraged me to give a voice to people in similar situations.


I am now a qualified Smoking Cessation adviser and also trained in Mental Health First Aid. I volunteer several times a week at charity shops and at winter night shelters. I just want to learn as much as I can so that I can help others. Joel has made an enormous difference to my life.”
