Personal Stories



Alex Kemp

"I arrived at Leon House on the 31st Aug 2018 after I became homeless due to a relationship breakdown, I was also unemployed at the time and had very little, if no money. Everyone was just really nice and very supportive and I was immediately made to feel welcomed. Auxesia Homes put a roof over my head and included a support package to help me get back on my feet. 

I served with Andy Reid in the The Yorkshire Regiment, and was on patrol with him the day he suffered life changing injuries. I helped administer first aid to him at that horrific moment, however, I’ve sometimes struggled dealing with the horrors of that day ever since. 


Whilst staying at Leon House for 4 months, I’ve received lots of guidance and support, including counselling from an experienced battlefield trauma psychotherapist. I’ve taken driving lessons and passed my test. Received CV writing and interview techniques, attended training courses, applied for various jobs and I’m now currently employed with Vital Rail.


With the continuous support from Auxesia Homes and Leon House, I’m now happy to announce that I’m due to move into a newly built 2 bedroom house within the next couple of weeks. I can’t thank everyone enough that’s helped me get my life together, I can now see a really positive future.

"I served in Armed Forces for 8 years and when I left I struggled to find work. With no family in the UK, I didn’t have a place to stay and couldn’t rent anywhere without proof of employment. Auxesia Homes was recommended to me as they help service leavers struggling to adjust. They offered me a wealth of advice and support, provided me with a place to live and assisted with my CV and interview techniques.

The facilities at Leon House are very good, and there are always friendly staff I can talk to. They have helped me through some really tough situations and have helped me to build my confidence. I can’t thank Auxesia Homes enough for everything they have done to help me get back on my feet. I don’t know what would have happened to me if I hadn’t had their support.

"My partner and I are extremely pleased with how quick and efficient the process with Auxesia Homes was. Working for the NHS I don’t have a whole lot of time to be searching for a home for our expanding family.


We contacted Joanne at Auxesia Homes via email from a Facebook post we saw. Within a day of emailing she had called us and arranged a viewing that very same day. From seeing the house, we knew it would be perfect for our soon to be family of three. We spoke to Joanne the day after and started the rent to buy process.

Joanne has been extremely helpful through this entire process, seen as though this is our first house, she has also been extremely patient in answering any questions no matter how silly. Within 5 days from seeing the house we were signing the tenancy agreement and receiving the keys to our first home."

"I am delighted with the service of Auxesia Homes. It was my first home and the process was quick, easy and efficient. Jo was my go to person and was always at the end of the phone whenever I needed anything.


I am a Nurse in the NHS, and it is welcoming to know many of my new neighbours are blue light and key workers also. I am in love with my new home and grateful to Auxesia Homes for providing a shared ownership opportunity to allow me to get on the property ladder."
