“Being out of work I found it hard to buy food so I was just living on my evening meals: porridge and cereal. I was not eating well. I was not healthy and it became a problem. I was always wondering, ‘what am I going to eat today?
I had no money and was struggling so much.
I was at rock bottom when someone at Citizen Housing put me in touch with St Giles. It was marvellous. The food is really good and I was helped to shop and choose healthy food. Now I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables when I would never have it before. It changed my life. The staff are incredible. I recommend it to anyone, it’s like a second home to me.”
St Giles supported Jackie with employment advice and coached her for job interviews.
She has now found work.
