Life stories

The real impact of Housing First can be discovered in the stories of people who have benefited from these services. It is important that professionals from across the sector hear their voices on how the approach has made a difference to their lives, and why they think it has been successful in supporting them to move away from homelessness. Here are a selection of residents' stories and videos, which we will add to over time.

  • Sarah's story
