I'm raising money for an ID Card and a Phone

Why I’m using StreetChange for an ID Card Application and a Phone

I’ve got a tenancy at the moment but I’m struggling to manage it. I’d like to register with a GP so I can get help with my health issues and start to get the support I need, but without photo ID it’s been difficult. I’d also like a phone so I can keep in touch with my family and friends as I struggle to go out due to my illness. I’ve just started working with Streetwork again–they helped me in the past when I was on the street. Now they’re helping me sort out some of the issues I’m having to do with my tenancy.

So with a phone and a Citizencard I’ll be able to access services and keep in touch with people so I will not be as isolated and on my own.

My Story

I became homeless after my mum died. After she died everything became too much and I couldn’t cope. I have suffered from mental health issues all my life but without my mum I really couldn’t cope. I tried to end my life when things were really bad… I was on the streets for a few years but eventually I was able to start to get things sorted.

My goals moving forward

I’d just like to get back to normal, deal with my issues and move on with my life.

You're on the right track Charlie. Keep going with your tenancy and just take one day at a time. Your mum would be proud of you. I'm proud of you and how far you've come.
