Real life stories of homeless people

People can become homeless for many reasons. We would like to say thanks to the clients who have shared their experiences with us, and talked about their hopes for their recovery and the future

In 2011 our Oral History project Street Stories gathered the stories of 41 residents. Listen to some of their stories and watch a short video by clients who conducted the oral history interviews (please be aware - some of the interviews contain strong language).

You can also watch some of our clients and staff talking about our work.

  • Maria's story
    At first, Maria started taking drugs at the weekends but her habit soon grew. She went from spending some of her wages on drugs to spending it all on drugs. She lost her job and, unable to pay the rent, had to leave her flat.
  • St Mungo's podcast
    Our staff and clients have some inspiring and moving stories to tell and you can hear them in the St Mungo's podcast.
