Leon’s life at Nacro Stody House

On the first evening, I met another veteran and we hit it off really well. We have bonded as a vets community – the atmosphere is as close as it’s ever been to being in the forces. The staff are fantastic, they don’t expect too much too soon and we feel we are listened to… I had given up, but in the short time I have been here I now look to the future with the knowledge and belief that I can and will return to independent living and full-time employment.’’
