Here’s Steve, the Wild Goose Engagement Worker. It was great to hear at our staff meeting recently, how one of their clients, who’s been living in a tent for a year, has been volunteering to hand out food to other homeless people in Champion Square during covid-19, whilst still coming for food at the Wild Goose pop-up himself. Steve said the transformation in this man, who used to be dejected and purposeless, has been incredible.
This new sense of life has enabled this man to get a safe and stable room in shared accommodation, along with a meaningful volunteer role as a driver’s mate with another charity. Steve is sad on the one hand that they won’t see him again, but extremely happy that this man is getting his life back together and is much more positive.
