Henry's story


Henry was working in a warehouse when Covid hit and his contract was terminated. He could no longer pay his rent and, without any support from his council, found himself forced into homelessness – on the streets and sleeping on buses.

Henry was referred to one of the hotels run by Crisis over Christmas last year. He had his own, warm room, three meals day and a Crisis coach who worked with him to deal with his depression and helped him to find somewhere to live when he left the hotel. Now, Henry is working as a carer. He says: “I have now managed to find work as a carer. Although it’s only three days a week it’s enough for me to pay for food while I am waiting for the council to find me somewhere to live.”
