Campaign: To show young people who are homeless that there is help available

I know what it’s like to be homeless.

 

Having slept rough in the past, I know it’s an extremely difficult thing to deal with and can be a catalyst for crime and drugs.

 

One thing that got me through the testing times was my love for music.

 

Whether it was writing or listening, it transported me to another world and gave me motivation to change my life.

 

Now I want other young people, who may be going through similar experiences, to realise that there is help available.

 

Hopefully my story can inspire others to focus on the positives in life and understand that nothing is impossible.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:

Billy Stephen Holly Ormandy
