Meet Michael

I was at the salvation army in Bradford, a homeless hostel, they helped me get a flat in Halifax.  Independent living didn’t work out and I was given an eviction notice with only 5 days to find somewhere to live. 

On the last day I met Dave Fawcett at the food bank where I was volunteering, and he offered me a place to stay at Happydays in supported accommodation.  Happydays have done so much for me.  I got accommodation, support, volunteering opportunities and when I felt ready, they offered me independent living in a move on property where there is light touch support if I need it. 

I now volunteer at Happydays hub, and I work part time as a caretaker. 

My life is so different now and I finally feel happy.
