We rarely share our successes here at HBH but we really wanted to share Dan’s story with you because he is a clear example of what people can achieve when they feel safe and secure in accommodation.
Over to Dan . . .
I arrived at HBH needing and probably more importantly, “wanting” a fresh start, a new beginning.
I was coming from a chaotic lifestyle that had been my norm for many years. I spoke to Jasper over the phone and was surprised when he said he’d offer me a place on the project. I was surprised because the view I had of myself was very negative. My way of thinking had already led to me believing that I would get rejected.
When I think back, this acceptance was the first step to repairing my self-respect and self-esteem. It meant a lot after years of feeling outside of society.

I felt safe and felt that I now had the opportunity to reshape who I was and create a new lifestyle for myself.
I felt safe and felt that I now had the opportunity to reshape who I was and create a new lifestyle for myself. I used my time at HBH to redirect my energy into moving forward and as the weeks progressed I started to achieve my short-term goals. This in turn built my confidence and it wasn’t long before my lifestyle felt a million miles from where it had been…and in a good way!
I arrived at HBH with next to nothing but left with confidence, hope, positivity and motivation.
HBH is a platform that can and HAS been used to rescue, rebuild and launch new and better lives.
I’d like to thank Jasper Thompson and all the supporting staff at HBH for the help and opportunity I was given to regroup, restart and succeed. Dan -Director of Wire Dynamics Ltd
