Michael Given is a support worker for homeless people in Glasgow.
Tell us a little bit about the work you do.
I am a homeless support worker based in the community in the East End of Glasgow.
I support people classed as “Homeless” to move on from Temporary Furnished Flats (TFF'S) to Permanent Tenancies. The work involves a package of support — assistance with obtaining Community Care Grants, accessing second hand furniture, state benefit checks and advice, referring and accompanying people to addiction services etc.
