Greg was living in a hostel which was unable to help him because of his multiple support needs. Earlier in his life, Greg had been involved in several motorbike incidents, which had left him with poor physical health and head injuries that meant he was often confused and struggled with his short-term memory.
As a result of his needs, and with no accommodation, Greg turned to crime and alcohol, which had led to liver damage and stomach ulcers, and admittance to hospital as he was vomiting blood.
Our staff realised that shared accommodation wouldn’t be suitable for Greg due to his physical and mental health needs. We supported him to move into a quiet area of the city in a private property, with a GP close by, which made Greg feel safer as he was close to help if needed.
Concrete worked with several partner organisations over several years to make sure that Greg received the help he needed to improve his wellbeing and prevent him from becoming homeless.
