Tim had spent years in and out of prison, street homeless or living in hostels. Fuelled by a previous drug addiction to heroin he found it hard to break the cycle of his offending behaviour.

With fluctuating mental health and challenging relationships with his family he decided to move out of the area where he was known and start afresh, turning his back on negative influences.

The space enabled him to address his mental health issues and he was able to reduce his drug use working with Turning Point he got on a Methadone script and managed to go from daily to weekly pick-ups.

Moving to one of our projects in a different area meant Tim was able to break the cycle of crime, drugs and homelessness. He eventually was successful in securing a flat and used his savings towards furnishing it to make it a home. Tim continues to receive support to ensure he maintains his tenancy but continues to be making a bright new future.
