Hi my name is Marie. I moved here in April 2019. I was still occasionally drinking and not looking after myself. Staff supported me to stop drinking and encouraged me to start some voluntary work so I had some thing to fill my time with and something to give me a purpose. I found that as staff said I had a purpose. Unfortunately, because of lockdown I have been unable to go, but my job is there for me as soon as they can open again. I enjoy working at the charity shop as I get to meet new people and have made some friends. Hopefully one day I will be able to find paid work and live a bit more independently.
