Speaking to our Action Hosting guests about what life was like before they got referred into our charity gives you a painful insight into the suffering that asylum seekers go through every day in our community.

Ali* talks very openly about how Action Hosting has taken him from being street homeless, to getting support and a roof over his head.

*We have used a different name to protect his identity

“I feel sick thinking about life before Action Hosting. You have no place, you have no life, you don’t have anything.

I went seven months without a place to live, just staying with friends, and then I was sleeping on the actual streets for three days, it was terrible for me.

Maybe I would have died if I had not been helped by Action Hosting. I don’t know what I’d be doing!

It’s given me a different life and made me strong and I look after myself now. Before that I had no life, I felt very, very tired and I couldn’t sleep very well, but now I sleep better.

Action Hosting gave me a place to live and sleep very well. All the people I met were nice and my support worker helped me a lot with everything.”
