Help Myself to Help Others

Henry knew he wanted to help the other people he met living on the streets. But he needed to sort himself out first.

This is his story.

‘I wanted to get off the streets. I needed to get off.’

Henry, now age 54, left Liverpool after a violent attack meant he needed to flee his home.

He arrived in London aged 48 with no network or family and slept rough for four months before finding help at homeless charities The Passage and The Connection at St Martin’s.

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.
