Paul - Queensland

“I come over if I’m lonely. I have someone to talk to and I do programs."

Paul lives near our community centre in inner Brisbane. Life has improved since he starting visiting us four years ago.

“Coming from a broken home and all the rest of it, yeah my life’s changed. Being lonely this helps with that. It makes me feel a lot better in myself – confidence, everything. I see a lot of people who are down and out and try and have a conversation with them. Sometimes they don’t want to talk, I leave them alone.”
