Our storyteller George is out there every day speaking to real people about their experiences of homelessness. Read and share these stories below. Let’s get the conversation started and change opinions.
'We first met seventeen years ago at a family BBQ, his mate and my auntie got us together. He presented me with a single red rose the next day with a note attached to it. We were apart for a while, but then we got back together in 2011, and that was it. Seven years together. We’ve been like this about 10 weeks now. They stopped paying my housing benefit because he was living with me at the time and working, but we couldn’t afford the rent without that money, so we got into arrears, and then we got evicted. We didn’t really have anywhere to go after that. We stayed on sofas for a bit, but that got really hard. People think just because you’ve got a roof over your head you’re not homeless, but it’s not the same as having your own place. We were put into a homeless B&B, but because we were a couple we weren’t allowed to stay together. They wanted to send us to different places and I just said, no way. We didn’t want to be separated. It seems that unless you’re on drugs and or an alcoholic you don’t get any real help at all. We’d have to pretend to be like that to get help from the council, but we don’t want to stoop that low.'Read Alan & Melissa now
'When you go through homelessness, you lose your sense of community and family. It's hard to talk to your family about your experiences... I've made such good friends through doing football. Knowing that you've experienced the same stuff makes that bond stronger. You feel a sense of closure. Your confidence comes back. 2018 has been a year of big changes for me. I'm now living in a Housing Association flat, and just one week after I moved there I got a job at a gym on the same street. Now I've been selected to play in the Homeless World Cup in Mexico later this year. When I got the phonecall I was like 'Woah!' I'm so excited!'Read Raph's story. now
'It’s really too hot, it’s about thirty degrees I think, maybe even more. I can’t even sit down for too long to try and make enough money for someone to stay, or anything like that, because the ground is so hot I’m scalding my arse for one, and two, if I am sitting down I can’t sit down for no longer than half an hour because I end up burning up and dehydrating. It’s good to see you bought me a bottle of water. I need to drink that to keep hydrated cos otherwise I’ll just pass out and get sunstroke. That’s the last thing I need at the minute.'Read Derek's story. now
