Jordan’s Story

Client Jordan

I am in a happier place now but it has always been difficult right from the start. I was neglected growing up and throughout my life I’ve experienced every type institution – care homes, mental health services, prison, hospitals – but only Turning Tides managed to help me turn my life around. They never gave up on me.

Yvonne’s Story

Client Yvonne

I left with my life in one suitcase – I never thought in a million years I would be homeless myself. But my life fell apart after my partner passed away. Turning Tides has saved my life. They gave me support, encouragement, made me feel safe and just gave me time to be. I will be forever thankful.

Lisa’s Story

Client Lisa

I don’t have to live in chaos anymore. I can be me. Turning Tides has turned my life around – they literally saved my life. I really don’t want to mess this up. I eventually want to work with addicts to inspire them that if I can do it, if I can change the course of my life, then they can too.

Paul’s Story

Client Paul

I am unable to share much of my experiences of homelessness. I still feel incredibly anxious now recalling that time in my life – particularly the awful experiences I had living on the street, constantly feeling afraid. However I do feel compelled to talk about the invaluable support I received from Turning Tides.
