From the Record Label to the Streets

In December 2016, Mattie left his role at Universal Music. Eighteen months later, he found himself homeless.

This is his story.

‘It was almost like I was living two lives.’

Mattie’s story is one that could so easily happen to anyone.

After leaving his previous role, Mattie struggled to find a new role and found himself in a negative spiral.

Combined with ever-increasing financial pressures and the threat of homelessness, Mattie’s lost all confidence in himself, making it ever harder to get his career back on track.

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.
