Ken has been rough sleeping for several years and he was accessing the Pathways Centre on a regular basis. The Pathway Centre was a secure place for him to stay during the daytime where he could express his concerns and worries. He was also given a shower, food and a hot drink as some new clothes.
Ken has gone from feeling hopeless and depressed to optimistic about his future.
Ken has been leading a very chaotic lifestyle and was not able to maintain independent tenancy so he fell into a regular pattern of alcohol abuse and rough sleeping. Because of that he had fallen out with family and this made him feel very isolated and lonely.
In September Ken was released from prison and he felt that he was ready to change his life and to accept our help. He was accepted in to our Pathways Training House and moved into his own room in September 2013. Consistent support and encouragement provided by our dedicated Intensive Support Worker helps Ken get back on his feet.
Ken is still working on his alcohol dependency but now he feels he can achieve his goals.
Ken has since taken part in our Jog On course and his life has turned around and changed dramatically. He has gone from feeling hopeless and depressed to optimistic about his future.
