Bradley, “I was sleeping rough for two years”

My younger brother and I were rough sleeping for two years before we found Deptford Reach. Everywhere we asked said we had to go elsewhere. I have health problems with my heart so it was difficult. Deptford Reach got the ball rolling for us. The project worker contacted Street Link, who put us forward to Greenwich’s housing options service, and within two days my brother and I had a place to live. Deptford Reach also assisted me with benefit claims and food when we were rough sleeping. They let us use the computers for job searches and helped me sign on to a GP service. Without them we would not be in the right state of mind. They really helped us out of our crisis situation and put us back on our feet.
