I just wanted to say thank you

The identities have been changed.

                    “I wanted to email you at Flagship to say thank you for all your help and support at a time in my life I needed it the most. I was homeless, I  got help with gas and electric, setting up Yorkshire water, taught me about budgeting and helped me again when I got my own place.

My housing support worker Joseph was amazing through it all,  letting me know he was just a phone call away.  I worked things out with my family, have a new partner and a new job working for Leeds City Council.

I don’t think I’d be where I am now without your help at a vulnerable time in my life. I just wanted to say thank you Joseph.”

You influenced my life more than anyone and you made me believe I could make it on my own!

This has been made anonymous

Dear Mark,

I want to tell you some things. I have  got an amazing promotion at work last month , I’m so happy and the bank approved our mortgage application today and I can’t stop thinking about Mary Seacole accommodation and my “homeless” days that’s how I’ve been fuelling my ambition. You influenced my life more than anyone and you made me believe I could make it on my own and I just want to thank you. I know you were just doing your job but at the time you was like a friend and a teacher to me when I didn’t have friends or family by my side and you always gave me the best advice.

I  just wanted to make sure you know how grateful I am to have had you in my life when I was at a very vulnerable stage. You’re a life saver. I won’t ever forget what you did for me. You deserve all good things!  THANK YOU

Sending positive vibes your way.

Young people feeling safer at home.

Thanks to a Central Government grant distributed by Leeds City Council  young people living in trainer flats part of the young persons housing pathway are feeling safer and more secure. Thirteen properties received security enhancements fitted by Elevate a local social enterprise specialising in the maintenance of buildings used for supported housing. We will continue to look to make these improvements.

“Before my door could’ve have easily been kicked in but now it would be very hard for anyone to get in who I didn’t want to come in. Definitely feel safer when I go to sleep and my child can’t open them either, so we are both secure.” Young parent.
