David's Story

David is being supported by Healthy Futures

David is no longer homeless and is looking after his health with support from the Healthy Futures team

"When I found out about Healthy Futures I was homeless and in hospital because of an aneurysm. Dave from the Hospital Liaison Team told me about Healthy Futures.

"The project has helped me in loads of ways. It got me off drugs and has helped me to start a fresh life. My support workers have been fantastic. They have taken me to appointments like the doctors and helped me to sort all of that out. They also found me housing and I’m living in a Derventio home now.

"Without Healthy Futures I would probably be dead. They’ve saved my life and I can’t thank them enough. They’re always there if I need them. If I have any problems they’re there. It’s been fantastic.

"My main goal now is to stay clean which I am doing at the minute."
