Abi’s story

“I was homeless, I felt I had no way to move forward, I had no family around me and had left school with no qualifications. I was battling with mental health problems and had no idea how to move forward with seeking treatment and building a better future for myself.”

“Doorstep helped me not just with the essential housing need (by giving me somewhere to live); they helped me find out who the local mental health services were. This assisted me with getting a diagnosis for my personality disorder and to access longer term treatment. Doorstep offered me their own short term counselling sessions which I feel I really benefited from before accessing Personality Disorder specific treatment.

I received advice and support around my education and how to get my maths and English qualifications; since then I have been able to obtain a degree level qualification which propelled me into a career. I am a Band 7 development lead in local mental health services and I am about to start an even more exciting opportunity developing mental health services in London.

I felt that the Doorstep staff had faith in me at times I didn’t have faith in myself. They were incredibly non-judgemental, supportive and were always rooting for me to do the best I can. They helped me believe that opportunities were possible, and I was capable of achieving the things I wanted.

I went into Doorstep believing they would only offer me somewhere to live, but they helped me build a life worth living. I will always be grateful for that.”
