Through receiving highly creative and tailored support at Evolve, Sharon shares her story of how things have improved since coming off the streets:
‘Before I came to Alexandra House, I was very low, I lost a lot of weight and I knew that I could not carry on with the life that I was leading. Now I’m healthy and very happy – I love my studio flat.’
Since moving in, Sharon has taken every opportunity to get involved. She has participated in breakfast clubs, a women’s group, cooking and baking workshops, gym classes and karaoke nights.
‘I like to keep occupied. When I move out I will definitely come back to help with the breakfast club as I love to be busy and I get on so well with the staff here.’
With our support, Sharon has grown in confidence and self-esteem and is now ready to live independently. Sharon is in our step-down programme and is looking forward to moving into independent accommodation. ‘The team here have been very kind and supportive. I feel prepared and ready to move on.’
