In the last year, while overcoming many personal obstacles Daniel has spoken out against wrongdoings locally in the City.

He successfully petitioned Brighton and Hove City Council to improve the standard of the Emergency Accommodation they offer the most vulnerable while at the same time facing his own demons and attempting to move on with his own life.

He has worked to raise awareness around mental health while promoting the rights of the wider LGBT communities.

Daniel said: “In the last 12 months despite my addictions, being diagnosed Bipolar, and being homeless, I have taken control of my life and used my voice to inspire, educate and evoke change.”
