"We nurture, you grow."
Having run my own business for many years, I (and my son) suddenly fell ill with a virus after having a holiday. My son recovered, but I kept catching other things, and found myself unfit for work through 'adrenalin burnout'.
Through participating in 3rd Space, finding my community and attending various courses (such as the Battle for your Mind - the full 13-week equivalent course), I was able to discover my spirituality and improve my mental wellbeing. The net result is that have recently secured a full-time job [one of 12 positions] that had over 4,000 applicants.
My new job brings me into contact with many more people, who may need a smile or an encouraging word in their day.

Chris & Makka are just two of the many people that we have been in contact with over the years that have been impacted by the community we are part of.
Everybody's journey is different - unique. Together we can have a huge impact on people's lives for the better. We just need to play our part.
Our dream is to build a community that we all want to live in, that is mutually supportive; where people are accepted for who they are; can discover their true identity and reach their full potential; and then play an active part in making our society a much better place.
I was involved with the MOD, and suffered from 'post traumatic' stress. Through a whole set of different circumstances, I became homeless, when I came back to the UK.
Like, Chris [my good friend] I was able to find a community of people through 3rd Space that allowed me to re-discovery my spirituality; and through their support and my good friend, I have been able to re-start my life with a fresh focus, and currently have a full-time job in the construction sector. This has allowed me to live independently and I will now be able to see my son in Russia.
