I found myself homeless and living on the streets, after being in hospital for a while, due to mental health issues and alcohol misuse. I contacted The Bond Board, who helped me to find a one bed flat that was available immediately.
I was interviewed and accepted for the bond, which was also issued the very same day. With thanks to this organisation, I did not have to go through the trauma of spending another night on the street.
The Bond Board did not stop there. They continued with their on-going support, including advising me and helping me to apply for housing benefit, liaised with the landlord to provide me with new carpets, making my flat more homely and referred me to a floating support service, which meant I could continue receiving support.
With thanks to The Bond Board, I am now getting help from the crisis for my mental health and alcohol issues and I am settling into my new property.
Thanks Bond Board!
