Nathan's Story:"When I first came to Justlife I was homeless with nowhere to go. As soon as I arrived Matt helped me find somewhere, a really good place just over the road from the centre. Since that first time I came to Justlife, they have really helped me turn my life around. Matt has been working with me and really helped me to get my life back on track.I came to lots of workshops and the morning drop in at Justlife to keep myself busy and not turning to bad stuff. A few weeks ago I started volunteering and it is brilliant. I help with the internet drop in and doing brews. I have also done some garden mantenance. I think if I wasn't volunteering I would be back in prison. I really like it here and it definitely keeps me out of trouble.At the moment I am also going to the Justlife jobclub and looking at getting into employment. Alex has helped me look at what I can do and helped me apply for some jobs that I would really like to get and apprenticeships which is great. The volunteering is preparing me for a job, getting my confidence up and giving me skills.I would definitely recommend everyone to come to Justlife and get advice. They are brilliant"(Pic: Matt, project worker and Nathan)Help us to help more people like Nathan: Please vote for us in the National Lottery Awards. Just click here.
