Alan has been sleeping rough in Ireland since he was 15.  Alan came to London to get away from the drug scene in Dublin. He is waiting to get benefits so he can get off the streets and into a homeless hostel.

Alan hopes to get his life back and then to give back to others by becoming a drug and alcohol support worker.  I am proof that even the worst of the worst street person can do just that!

Alan’s three wishes: “have a family, a job, and a house.”

Special thanks to St Mungo’s Broadway and Mencap.
