Testimonial - H3 through the eyes of a Committee Member
"H3 has provided me with a gateway to regaining my identity and confidence.
When you are homeless you lose your identity and reason for what you are living for. In H3 there are still people who can see that you can make it and that you have potential which can be nurtured all of which is done in many different ways through the charity."
"Finding yourself in housing difficulty and ending up in temporary accommodation, whatever the reasons, can be a pretty scary situation. So it was for me, and it would have been all too easy to sit in a room and dwell on the difficulties I was facing. I count myself lucky that I was introduced to a customer involvement group that was, at the time, known as the Temporary Accommodation Expert Panel. Here I met a group of people who had been through a similar experience and were keen to pass on what they'd learned. They also had some good ideas as to how things could be improved. The group was successful in that it soon became a Registered Charity, raising significant amounts of money and making a real difference to the outlook for homeless people in the Stockport Area.
My involvement with H3 allowed me to access the information I needed to improve my situation, as well as learn from the experience of others. It also engaged me in worthwhile and rewarding activity that was important in helping me get back on my feet. It felt pretty good to acknowledge the support I'd been given by putting a little bit back, and also to know that you might be helping someone else facing similar difficulties. It is a pleasure to recommend H3 to anyone who has the opportunity to get involved."
