Four months ago, Frank was living in a tent in East London. Now he has a safe place to call home at The Salvation Army’s Malachi Place. We will be there to support him and, when he is ready, help him find a job and place of his own.
For now, Frank is enjoying the simple pleasures in life, coming home after a long day, making a cup of tea and something to eat before sitting down to watch TV. These were things that he wasn’t sure he would ever experience again.
Our report #FutureProofTheRoof outlines what the Government needs to do to help more people like Frank and tackle rising levels of homelessness.
It can be hard for someone who has been sleeping rough to get back on their feet, but thanks to the tailored support he received at Malachi Place Frank’s life has dramatically changed for the better.
