I worked for fifteen years as a mechanic in the racing car industry. I had my own business and bought a lovely home.
When the recession came I lost a lot of business and was unable to pay the mortgage. At the same time I was going through a divorce and my life fell apart. I lost the house, my marriage and my kids.
To numb the pain I started to drink heavily. I was living in a car for a while.
During this time I started going to the Project. It was a really friendly place. They listened to me and didn’t judge.
I got some confidence back. They helped me find a flat, and sort out everything I needed to do. After a while I started attending AA and have been sober for 18 months. I am now looking for a job.
The Project has helped me get back on my feet again.
