Bean’s Story

“I bumped into an old friend who is disabled and in need of a carer. So I took up the position in return for being able to share his flat…”
Around 1998 I moved to Spain with my girlfriend of that time she being Spanish. After 2 years of living and working on the Costa del Sol the tenancy expired on the flat I was living in and found it impossible to find alternative accommodation I returned to Britain just before the millennium but had no accommodation here either.
After a few months of rough sleeping (not a big deal as I have experienced homelessness when I was young) I bumped into an old friend who is disabled and in need of a carer. So I took up the position in return for being able to share his flat, it is a mutually beneficial and ongoing arrangement.
