Indiana’s story

Indiana was housed by Latch after she started a relationship with a non-traveller, which was against the culture of her travelling community. Although she was not technically homeless, she suffered verbal and other emotional abuse that led to her feeling very low and a miscarriage. Housed in a new area of Leeds, she was able to start to feel safe and to receive support with her mental health. Latch is helping her to consider training opportunities and new skills to learn, such as baking.

“I feel I can live life again… Latch has been really supportive and helped me to get back on track with my money and sorting out my health because I was feeling really, really rubbish at one point, they just get it and help me to understand what changes I need to
make”

Our aim is to build positive futures for even more people like Indiana… find out how you can help support our work or read about more people we’ve helped.
