I was finding it difficult to manage my rent and bills, so I…was put in touch with my mentor Matilda. It made me so happy to get advice and help through Lambeth FACE. It gave me confidence and made me realise that I wasn’t on my own. I’ve become a lot better at budgeting. Now I’m at uni studying Criminology, Psychology and Social Justice – I love it!
