Our outreach team first met Jane in December when she had abandoned her flat after being bullied by her neighbours. Jane, who is alcohol dependent, was incredibly angry and emotional as she felt no one was helping and she had had to sleep rough for a night.
Jane came with the team to the Whitechapel Centre and we were able to offer her a room in one of our shared properties immediately. While she was there we helped her to access services for her alcohol dependency. She was quickly assessed and she started receiving support. Jane is now doing well, she is enjoying her own space which gives her the time to really focus on continuing her recovery.
