Mike's Story

Last year our advice services in Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings prevented 927 households from becoming homeless. The impact of this is huge: fewer people on the streets, less demands on local council homelessness services, and less children having to move away from their schools and their friends.

Mike moved into a Housing Association flat in 1980.  A few months later he was offered a job as a caretaker at a nearby social club - a job he did for 36 years until he was made redundant.  In 1996 he had moved to another flat owned by the housing association, but unbeknown to him, his employers had taken a sub-lease on the flat.  In law, his employer had become his landlord.  The social club went into liquidation.
