Homelessness can happen to anyone - Cambridge 105 Special

Project Worker at Wintercomfort chatting to John * outside.

John* is 29.  He has 5 A Levels, a degree and a Masters in Chemical Engineering.  He has never experienced alcohol or drug dependency.  He is ambitious, focused and positive.

In 2023, John spent three months living on the streets in Cambridge.

In December he shared his story with Cambridge 105 Radio, alongside Melody Brooker, Fundraising & Communications Manager and Alison Nolan, Senior Women’s Project Worker, at Wintercomfort.

”It’s crucially important that stories like this get heard. There’s this awful stigmatism that homelessness is strictly self inflicted and that quite simply is not the case.”
