Fund Top to become a security guard

Story
News 2

Thank you for your help in making my dreams come true. I hope this will change things around for me and my family.

For almost five years, I wasn't allowed to work because of circumstances outside of my control. Over this time, my family and I have been supported by our Church and good friends, but this is no longer possible - so I'm working my hardest to come up with a plan for what to do next, after being told recently that I can work again.

I've worked in security before, and was really good at it. So I've decided to go for security training and get a new SIA licence, to enable me to start work as a security guard. Then, I'll be able to pay my bills and take care of my family.

I'm looking forward to protecting people and properties again. If I have the opportunity, I would love to work in a gallery or museum, because art is one of my biggest passions. Or I'd like to work in a security team in a hospital, so I can make sure that people who are sick, and who are vulnerable, are safe.

Top is working with Beam as he is at risk of homelessness. For personal reasons, Top has chosen to use a pseudonym rather than his real name.
