Today we have three more inspiring stories of care from members
Mack`s extraordinary story
Mack, originally from Sheffield, faced a dreadful event in 2000 when he was attacked on his 40th birthday, leading to severe depression afterwards. After contemplating suicide, he moved to Birmingham for a fresh start. Despite challenges, Mack found support in Birmingham. Trident helped him overcome depression, emphasising the importance of communication. Encouraged by newfound hope, he is engaging in voluntary work and going to write a book about his experience, urging others facing depression to seek help.
Andrew`s life-changing story
Andrew, who has been working in maintenance at Washington Court voluntarily for over seven months, recently received a part-time support worker contract. Reflecting on the past, Andrew shares that a year and a half ago, he was homeless. The support from Trident and its staff helped him turn his life around. Now, he has his own place, regularly sees his kids, and describes Trident as a new family. This positive change has given him a new purpose and outlook on life, emphasising the importance of the support he has received.
