Kayleigh’s history of offending and drug use were ruining her life and taking a huge toll on her family. Framework helped her get her life back together with specialist support for people with offending histories.
"I was sofa surfing and rough sleeping for a few years, always getting into trouble with the law for trying to make money so I could survive and buy drugs. I was always with the wrong type of people. I was depressed and looked a mess at the lowest point of my life."
How I was helped
"Framework gave me the life-line I needed as nobody else wanted to know, and they supported me and helped me choose the best path to take in my life."
How I have changed
"Step by step I am turning my life around. I don’t have a drug habit anymore and I have finally got goals and ambitions I want to achieve. Since I became more stable I have found my independence which helped me prove to my family I have now changed and they now know I have grown up."
"I would have been in and out of prison, would still have a drug addiction and life would have gotten worse. I also would not have had any contact with my family and the rest don’t bare thinking about."
"I have come a long way since I had Framework support and I am now volunteering at The Sherwood Street Centre. My plan is to get a full time job and change other people’s lives.
The importance of this service
"If it closed...crime will go up a hell of a lot and then the economy will suffer and homelessness will increase."
