Changing Lives Award for Edinburgh woman

November 13th 2009
An ex-homeless woman has been recognised at a national awards ceremony for getting her life back on track. Celia Sa, 36, was named runner-up in the new talent category of the Crisis Changing Lives Awards, held in London. While studying for a Masters Degree at Edinburgh University, Ms Sa got into debt, often using a credit card to pay her rent. After graduating she found herself sleeping on friends' floors and sofas, finally moving into Edinburgh's Cranston Street Hostel for two months. But with the support of charity Crisis, Ms Sa, from Mozambique, won funding to train as a support worker for other ethnic minority women, and secured a paid placement with a charity. She now works for Saheliya, a black and minority ethnic women's mental health organisation in Edinburgh.
