Adebayor's started so well for Man City
Off the drugs and off the streets
Good morning. I woke up at 5.47 in a bunkbed in a house in Walsall today. The tiny cluttered bedroom belongs to Kay, a 23-year-old woman from Leeds, who lives here at the Manor Women's Project with sixteen other women. They all have two things in common:
1. They have all been addicted to heroin and crack cocaine.
2. They are all off the heroin and crack cocaine, and have been since they came to live here.
Last night, we sat in the front room and chatted about their lives over a Chinese takeaway and cups of tea. On the programme today, we'll talk about the successes of this place, and how they manage to guide people from their chaotic, drug-fuelled lives on the streets to college and a job.
Do watch this short film we made at an old disused warehouse near Walsall town centre, where some of the women used to take their punters, and take their drugs.
