At one meeting of the Service User Board there was a lengthy discussion of how we can help influence the way the general public views homeless people.
There was a strong feeling amongst the group that the most powerful messages come from hearing the stories of people who are experiencing homelessness.
From this discussion, the “My Story” project was born. A wonderful volunteer, Riki, offered to help pull it together, along with Tara and Tracy from SUB.
