I was homeless and I had nowhere to go and these guys gave me a chance. They supported me in every way from form filling to helping me join local community groups to help with my addictions. Without these guys I don't know where I would be.

I have received amazing support which helped me get back on my feet and enabled me to look for my own flat, Horizons helped me not only financially but mentally into my new accommodation. Without the help of the staff I would not of learned basic living skills and learn to deal with my own personal issues.
