JC has been staying in our hostel in Manvers Street. Whilst getting his haircut by Eddie’s Street Cuts, we had a chat with him to hear about his story.
Eddie’s Street Cuts is run by barber Eddie Ilic whose goal is to boost the confidence of people sleeping rough or living a street-based lifestyle. The team at Eddie’s Street Cuts work with several organisations including Julian House – operating at our Bath hostel.
This is what JC told us about his story:
Having your haircut can be a great boost to your self-esteem. Since JC had his cut, he has been staying at one of our hostels. He likes to keep busy every day by doing some of the chores in the hostel. His preconceptions about staying in the hostel have been proven wrong and he is looking forward to moving on, getting a job in roofing and moving into his own place.
