Stories from Justlife: Part 3

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”
