Nikki Atkinson, Asset Coach at Mayday Trust, asks how charities can develop the momentum created by Big Sleep Out and suggests a deliberate city-wide approach to providing resources to promote and strengthen the aspirations of people experiencing homelessness.
Read how Mayday’s transformed from a small housing support provider running an inquiry into how people felt about the quality of support, to an organisation championing systems-change to support asset-based and personalised approaches.
Watch our PTS Front line video to find out how the PTS works and what it means to be an Asset Coach at Mayday.
Our incredibly talented resident poet, Joe Cook, has produced a Mayday Poem for us based on his experience of spending time with our PTS team in Oxford and how he feels about the homelessness system.
Imagine suffering years of abuse and then being forced to live with men you don’t know. What would you do?
I’m so scared of people finding out where I live, I walk home on my own after my evening class, just to avoid having to tell people and being judged.
Things got out of control. I lost the kids and I couldn’t pay my rent. I asked for help and they didn’t listen. What am I meant to do?
I’m scared that once I go into the system, I won’t come out. Instead I sleep on the night bus until I go to college in the morning. I look forward to college. It makes me feel normal.
I have no friends, my family aren’t allowed to see me, I don’t have a job, I don’t have money. I’m staying in my room looking at four walls. This isn’t living.
