Lee’s Story

In September 2003 I was due to become homeless whilst with another Housing Association. The situation I found myself in was desperate; no home and no means of acquiring or renting one. By chance my girlfriend was a client with Nuneaton and Bedworth Doorway and advised me to contact them as soon as possible.   I did so and within a few days a prospective home was found for me, much to my relief.

The subsequent service provided by Doorway was hard to fault, unlike the Housing Association I was previously with, Doorway did their utmost to aid me with a vast variety of problems, ranging from formalities such as, benefit associated difficulties, to providing counselling for emotional issues.

Their support and diligence during my recent move into a council property was invaluable and wouldn’t have been possible without their assistance. Support was offered in buying all the necessary items required to set up home.

My girlfriend has also received fantastic support for over 3 years and is as grateful as I am for the ever present help and advice we received.  As we now live together in a council flat the support has ended, but we are now both confident in running our tenancy and are secure in the knowledge that should we run into difficulties we can still call for advice.
