Before moving into Bosco Society I had a 25 year history of substance misuse and offending behaviour. I was in and out of prison and ultimately came to a point where I had nowhere to live.
After securing a place at Bosco House I used my first six months to stabilise my life. I stopped using illicit drugs and even came off the methadone programme. I accessed the support of my Key-Worker and all the other staff at Bosco House to achieve my goals.
After moving from the main house into one of Bosco’s semi-independent flats I eventually secured my own tenancy through One Vision Housing.
Now I am drug free, living in my own flat and doing gardening on a voluntary basis with a view to accessing full-time employment. With the support of Bosco I have completely turned my life around.
