Leon's campaign is donation matched. Once he reached his target of £425, a generous sponsor donated an additional £425 to Ian's plan.
Savings goal: Housing
Hi, I’m Leon,
I’m currently sleeping rough and sofa surfing in Banbury. I’ve been working closely with Turning Point (a recovery charity), after a lot of hard work and dedication I’ve got completely clean which I’m very proud of.
I’m now hoping to gain stable accommodation. It will help me maintain my recovery, it will also give me the stability and base I need to have a genuine opportunity to find employment.
Aspire and Turning Point will be supporting me in finding work. The money is to pay for the deposit and first months rent so I can find accommodation in Banbury.
I’ve worked very hard and I’m ready to keep working hard, I just really need some help with that next step of housing. I’d be extremely grateful to anyone that helps me with this.
Leon’s support worker, Nikki, says: Leon is an ideal candidate for Greater Change. He has demonstrated so much commitment and resilience on his recovery journey. Now what Leon needs is the opportunity to have stable accommodation. This money would enable him to have the best opportunity to achieve his dreams.
