Often it takes more than one agencies input to build a good support system around a client and help them on their journey to success.
We are currently doing a short piece of intervention work with a client on our floating service around debt management – we have inside a week secured £500 from a local charity to pay off some rent arrears – meaning he is avoiding homelessness. We have also managed to engage him with his local Citizens Advice Bureau to address the remainder of his debts.
We have met with this client twice with one more support session to engage with the local alcohol services and he will then move on from our support.
Using his words “Wow I can’t believe this- I have been feeling totally **** for months, tried to kill myself twice and thought the only realistic option was to go back to prison- I can see some light at the end of the tunnel now, Thanks!”
