At the age of just seven-years-old, Nico Singh found himself homeless.
Following a change in family circumstances, Nico, along with his mum and his sister, had to upend their lives and moved into women's homeless shelter Kirton Lodge in Beaumont Leys.
The now 29-year-old said: "When you are young and you go through homelessness, you don't really know what is going on.
It didn't really affect me much then, I was more affected by it when I was homeless again as a teenager."
When he was in Kirton Lodge, Nico's mum met some ladies who encouraged her to move to Braunstone - somewhere the family had never been before, having lived previously in the Evington area.
The little family did just that, and Nico said it was very strange as he and his sister were the only children of South Asian heritage in their primary school.
