Marie's story: I faced pressure to move
Marie spoke to us about her time in unregulated accommodation before moving to the Together Trust and her experience of moving to independence.
I was in and out of emergency placements because they couldn’t find anywhere to place me, so my social worker took me to a caravan in Preston, which called a crisis placement. She said I would be there for 28 days, but I was there for 12 weeks and 3 days. The whole time I didn’t see any of my friends, I didn’t go to school, I didn’t see anyone.
