Story
News 1

People think plumbing is just unblocking sinks, but there is so much more. I’m interested in all aspects of it and am excited and nervous to start training!

I became homeless 5 years ago after a relationship breakdown. I was sleeping rough on and off, staying on buses, sometimes sofa surfing and staying with others.

The council put me into emergency accommodation and, from there, I was referred to St Mungo's. Staying with St Mungo's has given me some stability but I would really like to be able to support myself. The dream would be to have my own place to call home!

Going into full-time work will help me regain my self-esteem. I’ve completed general construction training when I was at St Mungo’s but would like to specialise in plumbing now. I was always interested in plumbing in school but just never had the opportunity to pursue it.

When this is all done and I have a stable job and a home to go back to, I hope to be able to spend some time at the seaside, looking out at the sea. It really reminds me of my childhood!
