Constructing a New Life

Kevin worked in construction from the age of fifteen; it was a job he loved.

When redundancy came out of the blue, it hit him hard and he ended up homeless.

This is his story.

‘From having a roof over your head for years and years and years to sleeping under a bridge…it’s really hard.’

The stroke and epilepsy has meant Kevin can no longer work in construction.

The Bond Board have helped him find a place to live and they also continue to support him on his road to recovery.

He now volunteers at their coffee mornings and this has helped him meet new people and build much needed confidence.

For the month of December, we’re bringing you a series of videos from Homeless Stories, a film initiative that tells the stories of the men and women who end up homeless and the charities that support them.

We spoke to the founders, Glenn and Dave, to learn more.
