Service user forum for Roughsleepers service

When Petrus Roughsleepers service began to work with M, he was sleeping rough in derelict buildings that were unsafe and due to be demolished. He had been living rough on and off for a number of years and also had a heroin and crack cocaine addiction. Six months down the line M is now in long term supported accommodation and is turning his life around. He's attending Adelaide drug clinic for treatment and has remained drug free. He is doing so well in his supported accommodation that his support needs are now assessed as low and he's looking to move soon into his own place in the community. M has become involved the Roughsleepers project and has attended steering group meetings to express his opinion about the service and to give ideas on how the service can be improved. As a result of his exceptional hard work in turning his life around M will be helping set up a forum for the rough sleepers project to develop projectswithin Petrud directed at rough sleepers.
