When Steven was five his Mum died, his Dad was in prison and he was put into care. He was later adopted but suffered abuse so at the age of 16 Steven ran away and ended up living on the streets. Homeless, young and vulnerable Steven got involved with the wrong crowd and consequently drinks and drug. He would steal food and alcohol just to survive and at night find a warm place to stay like bin sheds and car parks.
After six months Steven managed to find a bedsit and a job as a car valeter which he held down for three years but then his bedsit was burnt down and he was homeless again. He tried to keep his job going while sleeping in the car park or in some bushes but he was so tired that his work was going downhill and he got the sack. Steven became out of control and ended up in prison. Steven came to Amber on release from prison and has never looked back. He hasn’t touched drugs for over a year and is currently volunteering abroad.
