Mark, 52, has been at GROW for 18 months. In quick succession he lost his job and flat and gained a drinking problem.
“I lost the plot,” he admitted.
Mark is now hoping to find work using his upholstery and French polishing qualifications, and is aiming to gain some free driving lessons by taking on a literacy and numeracy course.
He added: “I just want to get back to work and normality.”
