Larry was referred to us by the Job Centre a few weeks
ago. He was living in a house that had no furniture or
cooking facilities. Larry is partially deaf and has had
a history of mental problems. He had no food due to
benefit cuts and had been sleeping on a pile of old
newspapers in a sleeping bag.
Within an hour of the initial phone call the Real Deal
Team visited him and supplied him with a new bed,
washing machine, food, bedding and other
household items. That night Larry slept in a bed for
the first time in four months! A few weeks on he
really is 'Happy as Larry!' He has just started a job
and is receiving ongoing support from our team!
Stephen has been a long time homeless man who
has been living in a tent due to heroin addiction. He
has been supplied with food on a weekly basis from
our centre as have a number of homeless people.
Stephen is now on a reduced methadone plan and
we are hoping to have him finally re-housed in the next
Our Food Bank continues to receive more and more referrals each week and needs ongoing
support as people are now referred from Social Justice/Job Centre and the Police
amongst other organisations.
Fiona is now part of our ever-growing team of
volunteers. She was originally referred to us through
Social Justice having a background of severe
depression and low self esteem through abusive
relationships. After a few weeks at the Life Centre
she is starting shine and get her confidence back.
She puts this down to working in a caring and encouraging environment with people
who genuinely care!
